Today marks the final day of the Zespri 14-Day Daily Scoop of Amazing Challenge. In a way, I feel a little sad because it was fun to be part of this Kiwi Challenge. Eating fruits can sometimes be mundane, but when a prizeâ€™s at stake, or simply when thereâ€™s competition, things spice up donâ€™t they?
Never has eating Kiwifruit been so exciting for me until now. The Challenge has also opened my mind to various possibilities of incorporating the Kiwifruit in my diet. Although itâ€™s perfectly fine to slice open a Kiwi and devour the flesh straight, I now know how to use the Kiwi as a marinade for my steaks or as a salsa to accompany the steak. I also know how to make Kiwi Pavlova, the 1st time Iâ€™ve ever tried making a Pavlova!
But I think most important of all, the Challenge has reminded me to have health at the top of my mind. A Kiwifruit a day is now my mantra and if I donâ€™t, it just doesnâ€™t feel right!
I will miss my little gold (and green) mine as the numbers dwindleâ€¦But I will feel happy knowing that they have been useful in nourishing me.
I shall end this post with a simple recipe for Super Tender Kiwi Marinated Steak. To make the marinade, all you need is the following ingredients:-
1 Tbsp Soya Sauce
1 Tbsp Tomato Puree
1 Tsp Cumin
1/2 Tsp Tumeric
1 Tsp honey
1 Tsp Lime Juice
1 Cut Chilli
Mix all the ingredients together into a slurry and coat your steaks generously. For best results, marinate overnight.When ready, simply pan fry the steaks in a little bit of olive oil until your desired doneness.
TADA, Super Tender Kiwi Marinated Steak! 5 minutes to prepare the marinade, and 5 â€“ 10 minutes of cooking time. Couldnâ€™t be easier!
Btw, if you didnâ€™t already know, the Green Kiwifruit contains high levels of Actinidin, an enzyme that helps with protein digestion. That means, the Kiwifruit is a great natural meat tenderiser.
