Summer Bread Spread

Today we have a delicious spread for the summer season that is packed full of flavor!

Ingredients:
1 serving of seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.)
1 serving of strawberries
1 serving of avocado
1 serving of rye bread

Preparation:
Roast the seed mixture in a dry pan until you smell a nutty aroma and then remove from the heat to cool down. Remove the pit and pulp of the avocado and cut the pulp into small cubes. Puree the strawberries with the avocado and a third of the toasted seeds (add a little bit of water for easier blending). Place the spread on toasted rye bread and sprinkle with the remaining seeds. Eat a few of the seeds first, then enjoy the bread and spread!

Tip: Strawberries can be replaced by other fruits such as apples!

Asparagus Salad

This fruity and fresh asparagus salad is easy to prepare and absolutely delicious!

Simply blanch a serving of green asparagus and carrots. Then add a few fresh strawberries, watercress or arugula, and mix with a light dressing made from white balsamic vinegar, a little water and – if you’re allowed in your plan- cold-pressed olive oil. Feel free to add herbs such as fresh basil, parsley, garlic, and chives for additional flavor!

Strawberry Season

From a botanical point of view, this is not actually a berry, because it has its seeds on the outside of the fruit rather than the inside. Strawberries are full of vitamins: They contain many B vitamins, folic acid, zinc, copper and even more vitamin C than oranges or lemons.

To mark the beginning of the strawberry season we put together a few tips!

◎ Strawberries should not be rinsed with a strong water jet, but rather be soaked in cold water for a few minutes.

◎ Drain the washed strawberries well or pat dry carefully.

◎ Always remove stems and leaves after washing, otherwise the aroma will be watered down.

◎ Strawberries taste best at room temperature, so make sure to take them out of the fridge 30 minutes before eating.

◎ Freeze some strawberries and then puree them with a mixer to make a fruity ice cream, the best refreshment in summer! Those who like to experiment can also add a few leaves of basil, which gives a very special, fresh kick.
