Asparagus and Red Capsicum Salad

Asparagus and Red Capsicum Salad


2 Red Capsicums
1/3 cup Olive Oil ( we used a lot less)
1 clove garlic (roast in oven with capsicum)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (use fresh)
2 tablespoon fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons dry roasted pine nuts
Handful small black olives

Roast Capsicum under the grill (drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper) until blackened, cover until cool enough to handle then remove the skin.  Chop all ingredients (I used the thermomix) and combine.
Cut off woody ends of the asparagus, line a baking tray with al foil.  Drizzle over olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in oven for approx 5 mins. (toss once during this time.

Place some fresh spinach on a plate, layer the asparagus and spoon over the dressing.  Serve with a slice of fresh lemon

Mixed Berry and Coconut Muffins - Gluten and Lactose Free

We recently hosted a gorgeous couple for 9 nights at HideAway Haven.  She didn't want to be a bother and didn't even mention she needed a gluten free diet.  Luckily her caring husband told us before her arrival.  We had so much fun coming up with different recipes for her breakfast.  She was overwhelmed and told us she had never eaten so well since her switch to gluten free.  She had no idea there was such a variety of foods.  She wanted to take us home with her.
