Oh yes, it’s that time of the year again. Our Biwa tree has delicious fruit and I’m loving it.
To be honest, I never even heard of Biwa until we moved to Japan. And I never really tried until we moved to new house and there was a Biwa tree right there in our new garden.
I didn’t really know what to do with the fruits so I started to experiment with it and found out that if I pick it before it’s too ripe, it had nice sourish taste, which I love in my salads.
And so my Biwa recipes came to life
Mixed Green Salad with Biwa
1/4 of iceberg lettuce
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/8 of red onion, sliced
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1/4 of bell pepper, cut
2 biwa, squeezed over a bowl so juice and flash separates
Bunch of cilantro
The juice from the Biwa fruit
1 tsp of olive oil
1 tsp of white balsamic vinegar
1 drop of Jade Lemon Essential oil
Punch of Himalaya pink salt
Mix all the ingredient for the dressing and let sit together so the flavors combine.
Meantime, prepare all you vegetables and fruit together in a bowl. Pour the dressing over it, taste it and then use some salt.
Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and enjoy your healthy and delicious meal!
Quinoa Biwa Herb Salad
1 cup cooked quinoa
Bunch of Baby leaf salad mix
Bunch of coriander
3 leafs of fresh sage
Little bit of fresh curry leaf
Lemon Essential oil
Three slices of bell pepper
Wash your quinoa really well to avoid it turning bitter. Boil with cup of water, salt and the curry leaf. It will give it nice smell and flavor. Let it cool down
In the meantime, chop the baby leaf and herbs and cut your cucumber and radishes into slices. Squeeze the Biwa in your fingers so it opens and remove the pits, squeezing the juice and flesh into the salad bowl. Toss it together with the rest of the ingredients. Mix spoon of olive oil with two drops of Lemon EO and pinch of salt and toss it together with the salad. Serve with some bell peppers
