This year all of the usual festivities for Cinco de Mayo were pretty much non-exsistent. Usually people are making a big deal about the Beers and Taco Special, Margaritas and Chips, Guacamole & Salsa. Not this year. Maybe it is the economy, maybe it is the political issues occuring in society in regards to Mexico, who knows.
So, I thought – I will celebrate it in a very “Quantum” fashion…
So I came up with the Quantuam “Cinco” Salsa a la Guaca! giggle..giggle!
Before I give you the recipe, I will tell you a little about the genesis of this recipe, besides being silly on Cico de Mayo.
In Los Angeles you can find a Mexican Restaurant, Taco Stand (Taqueria), Taco Truck, and even a Taco Cart all over the city. Probably in closer proximity to each other than a McDonalds is. There are loads of different places to have Mexican Food.
There is a place called CIRO’S. This was the first time I had a chunky guacamole. It was much more like a heavenly bowl of chunky avocado soup! Since then, I make a chunky style of my own. Definitly Natural, Definitly Tasty and Definitly KICK ASS!
QUANTUM “CINCO” SALSA
1 Serrano Chile
1 Yellow Chili
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 cup Cilantro
2 tbs. Mint
8 Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
2 Avocados, cubed
Preparation: Cube the Avocado and Halve the Cherry Tomatoes last. Add all of the other ingredients to the Food Processor and process until chunky. Be careful not to make it smooth!! Add the chuncks of Avocado and the cherry tomatoes.
The first 1/4 of the jar was filled with the soaked sunflower seeds. At this point the growth of the sprouts has reached 1/2. They are starting to show a small root structure now! I also read that you can eat these sprouts at any point of the process. To wait for the greens stage the sprout must be 4″ tall.
The next morning the Sunflower Sprouts looked like this…
Green Tops are showing now! Little leaves. These seeds are part of a general group called Brassica seeds. There are many different types. I will be covering them as time passes. Initially I put 2 T of seeds in the jar. The jar is filled about 1/3 of the way.
The next morning this is what the Radish sprouts looked like…
And in the morning even Cooler!!! Check out these peas!!!
