Homemade zucchini dip with melba toasts recipe.

Some of you might know that we embarked on a detox diet immediately after our holiday in Bangkok.

How could we not? As we waddled through the airport huffing and puffing at every step, we knew something had to be done. And that something would not involve things that once had heartbeats.

By the time we reached home, we were ready to crash….to fall into the deepest food coma but somehow, we managed to reach a mutual decision of going vegetarian and preferably fat-less for a week.

And then I woke up covered in beads of sweat after a rather unnerving dream of having an affair with a woman who liked to dress up as a man. Honestly, I do not want to know what that dream had meant.

Anyway, we started our detox week with apple + carrots slushies for lunch and the following recipe for dinner; zucchini dip with melba toasts.

# – Zucchini dip with melba toasts.

For the dip:

  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • A dash of salt
  • A dash of black pepper

For the melba toasts:

  • 3-4 slices of wholemeal bread
  • A rolling pin

# – First, heat up 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan then brown the garlic and zucchini slices.

# – When zucchinis are evenly browned, transfer them to a blender together with the garlic.

# – Add the lemon juice.

# – Followed by salt.

# – And black pepper. Blitz till content transforms into puree. The zucchini dip is now done. Set aside.

# – Now, cut the crusts off the wholemeal bread and then cut the bread into triangular shapes.

# – With a rolling pin, flatten the bread slices till quite thin.

# – Put them on a non-stick baking tray and stick in a pre-heated oven at 150 degrees celcius for 20 minutes. Serve with the dip.

# – Zucchini dip with crispy melba toasts, DONE!

I wouldn’t recommend it as a main meal but it would make a delicious and light appetiser. It’s creamy, flavourful and yes, healthy!

We were hungry as hell by bedtime, but sometimes you just got to be an adult about it and not succumb to temptation of heading out to Mcdonald’s for some fried chickens.

The good folks at Happy, or Happiness Generators (as they like to call themselves) recently held an event for us bloggers at Cafe Libre. You know those events where everyone looks constipated, the food is pretty but teeny and everyone speaks with a fake accent? Well, this one was not one of those.

Although I skipped badminton for the event, I managed to recoup my share of exercise on the Nintendo Wii. It was my first time, and I’m in love….

Highlight of the event? Meeting Edmund the Swifty! It’s been forever, dude!!!! Oh yes, of course I was celebrity stricken when the owner of My Women Stuff introduced herself, wish I had chatted more with you but I was so shy!!!

Here are some obligatory photos…
