Тake a large piece of aloe and fillet it, cutting off the green skin. You can do this by holding down the flatter side down on a cutting board and cutting as close to the jelly as possible. Try to keep the translucent jelly core (the insides) in one big piece. On a cutting board, with a sharp knife, cut strips of the jelly. Place all the aloe pieces in a bowl and soak in purified water for 10 minutes. Then place in a strainer and drain the aloe and rinse it well, then place the aloe strips in a bowl. To my surprise, once the aloe gel is soaked and rinsed, it actually doesn’t taste bitter at all and has simply a mild flavor.
This recipe will totally depend on how much aloe you have to cut up. The rest of the ingredients can be adjusted to taste.
- Wash and dice a small handful of organic mint leaves and add to the bowl.
- Cut up a medium sized tomato and add to the bowl.
- Add juice from 1 lemon or lime
- A small dash of garlic powder
- A small dash of kelp powder
- Toss and serve chilled or at room temperature.
Another option, is that you can sprinkle white or black sesame seeds on top for a little extra flavoring and Asian feel.
