I love tomatoes and try to incorporate as many of these in my daily cooking in several forms like rice, soups, pasta sauces, juices, pickles or chutneys, etc. Recently I came across a cooling Carrot Tomato juice in Kaveri's blog -with whom I am paired with this BlogHop Wednesdays , an event by Radhika- and it was quick and easy. This was also perfect for the rising heat these days in Bangalore.
Ginger: a medium size piece
Honey: around 2-3 tsp
Lemon Juice: 2 tsp +/-
Salt : a pinch
Pepper: as per taste
Blend together the carrot, tomato and ginger adding little water if needed to get a fine paste. Strain the paste and mix in honey,salt,pepper and lemon juice -as per taste.
Pour into glasses and serve garnished with mint sprigs.
Simple yet warm I must say about this cooler. I actually added more pepper and required salt to get a warm drink perfect for all seasons.
