minced fresh ginger
freshly ground black pepper
kiwis, peeled and coarsely chopped
fresh oregano leaves
lacinato (dinosaur) kale, washed and sliced thin
blanched slivered almonds
This recipe looked so interesting I just had to try it. I doubled the ingredients (for four servings) and made it as written except for using curly kale and substituted 1 tbsp dried oregano for the fresh. Sorry, but nobody in my family including myself cared for it. The oregano was especially overpowering, and the kiwi tasted like very sour lemon. If I ever make this again I think I'd cut the oregano way down and use only half (or less) of the kiwi called for.
Pleasantly surprised! Turned out very tasty. I didn't have fresh oregano on hand so used Sage and Savory dried Greek oregano. Slice almonds (not blanched) worked fine. The garlic browned up very quickly so watch that closely. Next time I will use 3-4 kiwis (I think mine were small). I also used 2 tsp ginger rather than 1 tsp because I love ginger. This recipe was my low calorie side to tomato-red pepper soup and it was perfect.
