I made this great plate after a morning of loads of wind here in the South of Spain, when this wind comes it can even be chilli so it calls for some warm and rustic food!
- Zucchini (I made them "julienne" style to give it a nicer look )
-Mushrooms (any kind you like is good, in this case I used Oyster mushrooms that are nice and tender.
-2 cloves of garlic
-1 organic egg
-Olive oil
-Salt& pepper

In pan add olive oil and garlic, let it warm up a bit but do not let them burn, make sure the heat is low, add the cut zucchini and stir fry all together a bit before taking it off the heat add the mushrooms for 2-3 minutes and take from eat.
In a water filled pan wait for water to  boil add a bit of vinegar and bring in the egg to poach, leave it in for few minutes keeping an eye on the egg for it not to break down.
Plate nicely the diffrent ingredients, first the mushrooms, then the zucchini and the poached egg on top, poor the nice garlic-oliveoil sauce on top.


This is a delicious way to get nutrition in a´s a creamy soup of white beans (great protein source!!) and romanesco cauliflower, the latter is of the Brassica familie...(brussel sprouts, cauliflower, bróccoli, kale, etc)...a typical winter vegg and very much used in detox and anti-cancer diets, they are full of vitamins and minerals.
When we go for a detox program diet the first thing you will have to eat is GREEN veggies and specially of the brassica familie, full of folates and other type B vitamins, very rich in vit.C, they have a lot of soluble fiber and are known to help prevent cancer as they are rich in "indole-3-carbinol" a phytochemical which boosts DNA repair in the cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells.
 Due to their high content in antioxidants they are great protecting the cells against free radicals, wich are the cause of so many degenerating diseases.

-White beans (precooked in water with some salt, don´t use the canned beans!)
-White cauliflower (1 little flower)
-Green romanesco cauliflower (1 little flower)
-2 cloves of garlic
-Olive oli
-Salt and pepper

In pan  with olive oil add the garlic and cauliflowers, just stir fry slightly, add salt and pepper, don´t let the veggies cook entirely, we want them to maintain their nutrients!
In a blender mix the colliflowers, garlic and precooked beans with it´s water and blend until smooth cream.
Serve in a nice bowl with some chopped chives on top for nicer presentation.
You can also eat this soup cold, it tastes very good aswell!!!
