During the hottest time of the year we love to eat dishes packed with exotic and fresh flavours and if they’re healthy too, even better. Below we have listed 3 options from tropical regions to enjoy and dazzle guests at your summer dinner parties.
- Poke Bowl with scallops: Poke Bowl dishes are a trend all over the world; they are super healthy, simple, exotic dishes, and above all, delicious. In this version, we’ve set aside the traditional salmon or tuna options, replacing the fish with tasty scallops. Are you up for a change?
- Vegetarian Chilli with Bulgur wheat: this vegetarian chilli has nothing to envy traditional chilli con carne. Bulgur wheat is a grain naturally high in fibre and low in fat and calories! Combine it with chilli’s traditional ingredients: onion, red beans, carrots, garlic and celery and season with chilli, and you won’t notice the difference.
- Arepas Reina Pepiada: This is Venezuela’s most famous arepa, its surname meaning “good curves”, and it was named after the Venezuelan model, Susana Duijm, “Miss Universe 1955”. The filling is easy to prepare, and above all, very tasty; you just need chicken breast, avocado and a bit of mayonnaise. Mix everything together and fill those delicious arepas.
And how about the drink? Blume Sauvignon Blanc obviously! Its fruity character and tropical aromas pair perfectly with these exotic dishes.
