A classic with a “twist”.
2 cups cherry tomatoes cut in half</br> 2 avocados, diced</br> </br>“Mozzarella”</br> 1 cup macadamias, soaked for 2 hours</br> ½ tsp. lemon zest</br> ¼ cup lemon juice or water</br> ½ clove garlic</br> ½ cup nutritional yeast</br> 1/2 tsp. salt flower</br> ¼ cup basil, chopped
Start by making the mozzarella: Put all the ingredients except the basil in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is creamy. Place in a bowl, add the basil, and then mix gently.
Place the tomato and avocado on a serving plate. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with small spoonfuls of mozzarella and basil leaves.
Tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene, which essentially acts as a natural sunblock and collagen booster. Eating tomatoes while they're in season helps defend the skin from UV damage that causes wrinkles, age spots and lines. They are also anti-inflammatory and high in potassium, to keep your electrolytes in balance for healthy circulation of beauty nutrients.
