With the Dubai weather getting slowly a bit chilly – this is what we call the 22 degrees Celsius at night and is our actual “winter” – we start thinking of all the winter flavors. My favorite soup comes to my mind – red cabbage cappuccino. Sounds awkward, but please do try the recipe, it is so good! And the purple color is so unusual! The soup comes also with a benefit of low calorie count, great for a little pre Xmas weight loss. Did you know that this color is a sign of the presence of one highly sought after antioxidant? Antioxidants are highly beneficial to enhance the overall well-being, better ageing, health, beauty, and performance – all relates to the food we eat. So all that dark, purple and violet hues in vegetables, fruits and berries should be part of our kitchen repertoire. The best antioxidative berries are blueberries. The real inside and out dark blueberries, the ones that leave your tongue dyed like a Chow Chow 🙂
These gems are unfortunately very seasonal when you want to get them fresh. Unless you have discovered already the powder form …. arctic berries powder. This is the new super food kid on the block. Below link leads you to the product information too. Expect my soon to be revealed new food menu in our Talise Cafes in Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai c o l o r f u l. There will be always something purple…
