Spring via Spain: Fresh Tastes with a Twist
recipes by Eva Rawposa
Looking to other countries is a great way to broaden your family’s palate! And kids of all ages love learning about new places. This month, take a trip to Spain – without leaving your home! To celebrate the season of growth, raw chef Eva Rawposa shares five recipes that give your usual dinnertime fare an international twist. Looking for a new rice dish? Make it from cauliflower, and skip the stove – uncooked, it retains all of the vitamins and fiber for a delicious and nutritious paella or “rice” pudding. Instead of starting with a winter soup, take a fresher turn with a traditional gazpacho or a fennel and grapefruit salad.
Eva tells us about the different rhythm of
eating in Spain:
- They don’t eat a proper meal in front of the TV. Ever.
- They don’t take food to their rooms or scarf it down.
- They sit, at the table, with family, and have a lively conversation. Sometimes… for a really long time. It’s time to enjoy and connect!
- After lunch (which is never anything like a PB&J sandwich and is often three courses), they take a siesta (that means it’s nap time for the whole country, and most shops and restaurants are not even open!).
- They finish working after the nap.
- After work, they go to a bar for tapas and more conversation, where they have a beer or wine and munch on the snacks at the table.
- After that, they come back home for a late and light dinner.
