Yum, these two ingredients actually go very well together! But they are just the two new foods William has tried since my last post.....
We live in a very urban neighborhood, but are lucky enough to have a great backyard. It is small, so our "garden" consists of two large plant pots, both of which are filled with herbs (basil, parsley and thyme.). William and I also planted a few beans, and have so far harvested four. Four beans. We'll deal with them later.
How have we used the basil and mango so far you ask?
1/4 ripe avocado, mashed with 1 Tbsp. whole milk yogurt. Stir in one fresh basil leaf, finely chopped, and a tiny sprinkle of garlic powder.
1/4 portion brown rice (recipe) mixed with 1/2 oz. spinach, 1/2 oz squash and one finely chopped basil leaf. Sea salt and black pepper optional.
1.5 oz mango puree (I like Bella Baby) mixed with 2 Tbsp. whole milk yogurt. Sprinkle in multigrain (or rice, or oatmeal) baby cereal (Earth's Best is what we use) to desired consistency.
Now to mix the two together! I think tomorrow we'll try a mango-yogurt-basil combination for breakfast.......
