First I like to wash my veggies and fruits with "Environne" which is a fruit and vegetable wash proven to remove pesticides, waxes, and chemicals with all natural ingredients. You can purchase these at Trader Joe's. To find a store closest to you, click on the following link: http://www.traderjoes.com/stores/index.asp You can also find them on Amazon, Henry's, Whole Foods, or Bed Bath and Beyond. Here is a link to their company's website if you are interested in learning more about the product: http://www.environne.com/index.php?m=1
I really like to use it on all of my veggies and fruits especially the ones that have that waxy residue. These peppers for example tend to have that waxy feeling and so do most apples and plums. I wouldn't recommend this wash for raspberries and blackberries though because they tend to fall apart. When you use this product, your produce will feel super clean and crispy! I've been using it for a few years now and one 16 Fl. Oz. bottle will last you several months.
Direct Application: Apply a few drops directly to your produce. Massage for approximately 30 seconds and rinse thoroughly with water.
For Bulk Washing or Larger Quantities: To wash fruits and vegetables: lettuce, grapes, broccoli, mushrooms, berries, etc. Mix approximately 1 tablespoon per 32 ounces of water. Add produce, swish up to 30 seconds; use vegetable brush if needed and rinse thoroughly with water. One tablespoon of Environne Fruit and Vegetable Wash with 32 ounces of water can wash approximately 10 lbs. of produce.
Ingredients: purified water, natural cleansing agents (derived from plant oils), polysorbate-20 (derived from sorbitol/berries), grapefruit seed extract and lemon-orange extract.
Angel Hair pasta: I love angel hair because it cooks so fast! I hate waiting around for things to cook when I'm starving so I just boil the angel hair for about 5-10 minutes, then I strain the hot water and transfer the noodles into a bowl. I drizzle olive oil over it to keep the pasta from sticking or from getting too dry.
While the noodle is cooking, I cook the veggies with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and frozen shrimp in a separate pot. I love Costco's pre-cooked tail-off shrimp because they are flavorful and super easy to use with any dish. You can pop them in the microwave or boil them for a few minutes with seasoning. You can use them in pastas, salads, tacos, or just eat them with a shrimp cocktail sauce.
When the shrimp and vegetables are done cooking, add them to your bowl of angel hair pasta. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the top with a little extra seasoning on top and you are ready to eat! It's super fast and easy to make and will definitely satisfy your hunger.
