This is a must-do if you have a free afternoon at home. Go buy good big garlic heads, like 6 for example, roast at low temperature in an oven for an hour, cool down, peel and squeeze with your fingers to get out all the garlic paste. Tupper it up and save it on the fridge. It lasts for a looong time and serves for rice, salad dressings, light mayonnaise, meat, lamb, chicken, you name it!!
Ingredients and Preparation.
- Place the whole garlic heads in a pyrex for oven.
- Add some olive oil and roast for one hour or until soft at 150ºC.
- Squeeze with your fingers the garlic cloves and remove all the paste.
- Save in the fridge in a tupper and use for anything you want!

I had the chance to visit La Habana over three months ago with my family. A trip that had as a main objective to feel Cuba and the cubans, and we were so lucky that we managed to share many moments of our trip with a couple of 100% Cubas that have a special and huge strength and desire for Cuba to change and for the freedom of speech. Because in a country where the word ‘progress’ is synonym of ‘illegality’ is in need for a revolution and change.
And that’s what today’s recipe is about. It goes to everyone of us that are tired of being fooled and lied to. What is happening now in Madrid and has extended to Spain, Europe and the rest of the world is what Cubans will live some day in their own Plaza del Mar.
It’s time to ask for change, and it’s time for things TO change. I hope this movement will prevail and I hope it can reach my country Perú. We have recently lived through a terrible electoral scene, repeated and shameful that does not unite us, in the contrary they grow us peruvians apart. And this is inconceivable. We must unite on the same fight and not fight against each other. Ignorance of calling ignorant to the ones that are ignored has to stop. Because the are the ones that had and have the biggest right to ask for a change and to not want to be ok with a government that does not take them into account.
Today I leave you with this Pesto Habanero that we ate at these two friends house in Cuba. Pesto that is born from a generation that does not want to be conformist. Pesto that represents this revolution and begining of change.

Pico de Gallo
Number of Diners
Perfect partner for watching movies, with football and friends and of course our sunday’s classic. The super-Nachos, as my boyfriend calls them or “my-way Nachos”. The ‘salsas’: classical Pico de Gallo, Guacamole and a delicious goat-cheese and cream salsa. Must not wait to try them!
- 1 avocado (or more if you love it!)
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 white onion
- 1 cup of dark beans (either yesterday’s left-overs or a can of beans).
- 1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese
- 3 tablespoons goat-cheese
- 3/4 cup cream
- 1 bag of corn-tortillas/nachos
- 2 limes
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped and fresh coriander
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
- salt, black pepper, cumin
- 1. Cut the avocados in half then remove the stones. Scoop the flesh out of the shells and place it in a bowl. With help of a fork puree it.
- 2. Stir in the juice of half a lime (or more, depends on your taste) and season with salt and pepper.
Pico de Gallo
- Finely chop the onion and put it in a bowl with the juice of 1 lime. The lime juice will soften the onion.
- Peel the tomatoes and chop finely.
- Add this to the onion with the coriander and sugar. Mix gently until the sugar has dissolved and all the ingredients are coated in lime juice.
- Season with salt, pepper and cumin.
- Chill for 2-3 hours to allow the flavours to blend. Garnish with lime just before serving.
- Goat-cheese sour cream
- 1. Beat the cream with the goat cheese until it looks like a fine cream!
