Happy Cinco Da Mayo!!!

I finally bought a dehydrator. Yeah ME! I’ve been playing with it ever since! For dinner I had these scrumptious things.

I made the broccoli soup again, plus the marinated bok choy (viki’s recipe) and some onion bread I made in the dehydrator (the recipe is from rawvolution). I found it a bit salty so next time will put less soy sauce.

I also started crackers tonight. They smell yummy already, as well am attempting potato chips!

For dinner tonight I made 3 sprout salad. Incredibly easy to makes. You take three of your favourite sprouts (mine were mung, azuki and fenugreek) add tomato, sweet pepper and cucumber, lemon to taste and voila!
