Adi: Oatonomy

May 30, 2009

This was so easy that anyone could make this.  Even my dad could! – and that says a lot. 😉


I grilled a red pepper on the bbq and chopped up a tomato + half an avocado.  I got some rice pasta cooking and once that was finished, I mixed in the veggies (umm, fruit? avocado?) and added about 1 – 2tsp. extra virgin olive oil + fresh basil + juice of half a lemon + 1 tbsp. capers + 1 garlic clove + lots of little shrimpers.


That foreground shrimp appears to be wearing a basil leaf loin cloth.  Hmm, a little camera shy.

I want to relive eating this forever – or, at least until tomorrow when I think about reliving eating oats.


It tasted so fresh!  I love using the real stuff… real lemons, freshly picked basil… it does make a difference.  Give this “recipe” a try and you won’t be disappointed! 

The only bad part about this was it was a bit too garlicky for me, so I didn’t say hello to the bus driver on the way to the gym.  I felt kind of bad for not saying hi back, but I didn’t want him to fall out of his seat.  I’m sure he would have understood!

That looks amazing! I have a shrimp + avocado dish on my menu this weekend, too. This has me changing my mind about the preparation method lol.

That looks amazing – it was the shrimp that sold me and then the AVOCADO!

it’s an OC transpo driver – he deserves it after last winter’s debacle!
