Ingredients 1 zucchini
2 beefsteak tomatoes (or the equivalent in other types of tomatoes)
1/3 red onion (or 1 small yellow onion)
3 cloves garlic, derooted
1 jalapeno pepper, deseeded
1 medium carrot
3-4 portabello mushroom caps
1 red pepper
cumin, to taste
tumeric, to taste
Directions 1) Using the S-blade of your food processor, chop one veggie at a time, achieving the desired texture with each before moving on to the next (meaning: don't just go for over processed mush for all of them, strive for a little variety!).
2) Once you're done with one veggie, empty the contents of the food processor into the big bowl, and move on to the next veggie!
3) stir in the spices at the end, once all the veggies are in the big bowl.
For a protein punch, add some curried lentil sprouts (mix lentil sprouts with olive oil, cumin, tumeric and cayenne until well coated) or walnuts ground with a bit of cumin.
