Falling leaves, lifting flavours

As the season go by, I realize how meteoreopathic we all are. Autumn puts me in such a reflective mood, and I love the effects of its natural light chromotherapy. Nothing but a ray of sun or a dramatic and beautiful dance under the rain can enhance an intention, the profusion of a detail. Spending a Parisian morning with author of blog Tresor Parisien Aisling Greally, we discussed on the importance of sourcing the ingredients of our food shopping directly from the producers. Our stroll at Marché de la Bastille in the heart of the Marais neighbourhood was indeed fruitful, choosing our ingredients directly brought to the Parisian market stalls from Burgundy, Provence, Normandy... and a little further, to be exotic and get a little inventive why not. Back home, I came up with this healthy dessert or snack fruity recipe, to be enjoyed while watching the falling red and brown leaves from the window, in full #foodhappiness swing. Ingredients for 2 persons:

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 unwaxed organic lemon (the juice)
  • 50 gr. organic walnut pieces
  • 50 gr. pomegranate seeds

This is truly easy. Just peel the mango off its skin with the aid of a knife. In order to make a clean job, hold the fruit vertically and cut it in stripes, then proceed onto cutting the upper and bottom parts. Once done so, cut the fruits into dices and place in two dessert bowls. On top of the mango, splash the lemon juice and, evenly, the walnut pieces and the pomegranate seeds. Mix well and enjoy immediately or with yoghurt in the morning.

With love and pomegranate,
