Roasted Potato Wedges with Herbs and Spices

Potato wedges are a classic favorite, salty, spicy and full of flavor, we love their crunchy outside and soft interior. But fries are usually quite unhealthy and deep frying can be messy, so this roasted option with herbs and spices will be a better option for a tasty snack (maybe along some home made guacamole?) or a perfect side for any dish, like these veggie burgers. Apart from healthy, what I like the most is that this recipe calls for no fuzz, no pre-boiling or even peeling, simply give the tubercle a quick rinse, a few cuts and a good toss with olive oil, salt and spices. So easy it almost needs no directions!

INGREDIENTS:
· 6 medium-sized Potatoes
· 1 tbsp Paprika
· 1/2 tbsp Curry
· 1/2 tbsp Turmeric
· 1 tbsp Thyme
· 1 tbsp Oregano
· 1 tbsp Herbes de Provence
· 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
· Salt & Pepper to taste

METHOD:
Since we are leaving the skin on, rinse thoroughly the potatoes, cute them into wedges and place those on a bowl, together with the spices, herbs, oil, salt & pepper to taste. Now, roll up your sleeves and give them a good massage to cover all of their surface with the spicy goodness, ready for the oven! Place them on a tray and bake at 250ºC until the potatoes are soft and golden brown. I’m sure this recipe will become one of your favorite basics, so tasty!

Raw Cucumber & Avocado Soup with Cashew Cream

I know, I wanna cry too, school is around the corner, a very narrow corner, and summer has been the shortest street, although the temperature still is terribly hot here in Mallorca. But, I’ve come up with the perfect recipe for this terrible moment, a very easy “I don’t wanna cook, I’m depressed and it’s hot” kind of recipe. A Raw Cucumber and Avocado Soup which is fresh, nutritious and delicious. It has it all, but for complications or unnecessary movements that would make you sweat. On the musical note, another great discovery: Hiatus Kaiyote, very recommendable this live performance of “The World It Softly Lulls” although, the whole album from top to bottom is very recommendable.

INGREDIENTS:
· 2 Cucumbers
· 2 Ripe Avocados
· 1 stick of Celery
· Juice of one Lemon
· 1/2 tsp of ground Cumin
· Dill, Coriander or Parsley
· Raw Cashews

· Lemon Juice
· Water
· Salt

METHOD:
Peel and cut the cucumber into chunks, destone the avocados and scoop out the goodness, cut the celery too & then blend it all together with the 3 remaining ingredients. That’s it! Soo much work to make a meal right? But if feeling fancy, which I usually do, blend cashews with some lemon juice, water and salt and an amazing cashew cream magic will happen! Yes, I know I haven’t been very specific with the measurements, but always do this cream to the eye and so should you, there’s no way to get it wrong really. Vegan, raw, gluten-free, done only with a blender… real #easy food.
