I am a bit of a matcha nut, and today am delighted to have some matcha from Teapigs to giveaway. There is one main prize of a matcha gift set – with matcha, measuring scoop, whisk and shot glass worth £32.50 and a runner up prize of a tin of matcha.
Matcha not only tastes great, but it also contains 15 times as many antioxidants as regular green tea. Also it is fab for –
- improving condition of skin, hair and nails
- providing a gentle energy boost lasting 4-6 hours
- reducing mental stress and increasing concentration
Matcha is also great in dressings too. Here is a dressing from Laura Santtini’s new book Flash Cooking, which was featured in the Sunday Times for their healthy new year’s diet (part 2 is tomorrow).
Far Eastern (Matcha and Lime Yoghurt) Finishing Yoghurt
1 tsp matcha tea
1 tsp chopped chives
grated zest of 1 whole lime and a squeeze of juice
some dried shisho (optional)
3tbsp Greek-style live yoghurt
Try adding a pinch of wasabi for an unexpected ninja kick!
Stir this into soup, or set a dollop in the centre of each bowl, or sit them on the side of a plate to give a refreshing finish to fish, meat, and vegetable dishes. Add the ingredients shown to 3 tablespoons of live Greek-style yoghurt for enough to serve 2-3 people.
