Mixed Salad

1 Fresh Corn on the cob (or equivalent of frozen corn defrosted)
1/2 can of black beans drained and washed
2 hand fulls of cherry tomatoes (I like to mix the yellow and red for more color)
1 or 2 jalapenos (depending how spicy you like it)
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the corn off the cob, drain and wash the black beans under cold water and then drain again. Lay them on a paper towel while you cut the tomatoes in half. Chop the jalapenos into little pieces. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and season with salt an pepper.

This salad is so yummy and doesn't require any dressing. Healthy alternative side to any meal.


Avocado Salad

1 ripe avocado
1 tub of little fresh mozzarella balls
a handful of cherry tomatoes
half of a lemon juice
salt and pepper

Cut the avocados into cubes, cut the cherry tomatoes in half, add the mozzarella in a medium size bowl. Squeeze a half a lemon juice into the bowl, add salt and pepper and mix together.
And that is it, super simple and easy to make. Let me know if you like it.

Roasted Tomato Soup

2 lbs of roma tomatoes
6 gloves of garlic in the skins
salt and pepper

Cut all the tomatoes in half lengh wise. Take a cookie sheet with edges and put the tomatoes face up all in a row on it. If you fill up the whole sheet you get enought soup for two people. put the garlic gloves in one corner of the cookie sheet and add salt and pepper all over the tomatoes.
Bake this in a 375 degree oven until the tomatoes are all smushy, maybe 20-30 minutes. Add the smushy tomatoes into a blender, pop out the garlic gloves from the skins, they should slide out super easy, add those into the blender as well and pulse it until everything is mixed together really well and it is liquid.
You'll need a bowl that fits a siv over it and poor the tomato garlic mixture into the siv. This way it keeps the seeds and the tomato skins and you end up with an awesome smooth tomato soup. Now its ready to serve.
You can serve it with basil or cheese or croutons and a side of grilled cheese of course.

* This recipe came from a cookbook I bought while in Australia. I've been making it by heart for so long that I don't even know if I have the cookbook anymore. I wish I could give credit, if I find it I'll update.
