September has started of with a bang for me here at Real Food Pledge! I currently have a little bit of down time while I am waiting for the designers to do their good works on my book but in the mean time I have had the pleasure of receiving a copy of this beautiful recipe book by Elizabeth Marsh this week in the mail, even before it is released….. so I feel extra privileged. The book is packed full of 55 amazing real food recipes from breakfasts, snacks, dinner’s and treats as well as some information about the paleo food lifestyle.
As you know I don’t call myself paleo, but the paleo lifestyle is all about real food which is inline with my philosophy, so that is why I am so pleased to be sharing this book with you here on Real Food Pledge.
I have exciting news for you, I am going to share with you how to make Watermelon and Basil Granita which is a lovely recipe straight from Elizabeth’s book AND (drum roll please) I am going to run a wee competition to give away a few copies of this book to my amazing readers, which I am fizzing about. The good news is, you can live anywhere in the world and if you win, the book will be delivered directly to you. The better news is, it is super easy to win! All you have to do it comment below and tell me why you would like to win a copy of this super cool book.
The winner will be drawn on Monday the 8th of September 2014.
OK, so not everyone can win, but don’t be sad because this amazing book will be available for purchase at all good book retailers online and offline this month.
Now for something yummy!
- 2 cups frozen, cubed watermelon
- ½ small red chilli or ½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
- 5 basil leaves, plus a few for serving
- lime rind and salt, to serve (optional)
- In a food processor, pulse all ingredients to slowly break up the frozen watermelon. Over-process and you will end up with fancy watermelon juice!
- Just as it reaches a sorbet-like consistency, scoop into small bowls and top with some basil sprigs.
- Tip: At your next trip to the Farmer’s market, stock up on cheap, in-season fruit like watermelon or peaches. Peel, dice and freeze in sealed bags or containers for a quick and easy dessert like this.
