FIRST: COLD CUCUMBER AND AVOCADO SOUP
The heat returns and with it, the season of cold soups. This, halfway between a green gazpacho and a vegetable cream, is made in five minutes and without any dairy.
SECOND: CUBAN PICADILLO
A classic of Cuban cuisine named after a song by Tito Puente, which admits many variations and is prepared in a pinch. Ingredients? Veal seasoned with capers, olives and raisins.

A homemade polo shirt very simple to make -and even more to eat-, with the star fruit of the season as the protagonist and an acid and salty point that makes you rethink the way you have always eaten watermelon.

FIRST: RICOTTA SPREAD WITH TOMATO AND OLIVE SALAD
It has a little fresh salad, a creamy texture nothing heavy and is designed to eat it on top of delicious slices of crusty bread.
A good starter for a Tuesday, without a doubtMònica Escudero
SECOND: SPAGHETTI 'AGLIO OLIO E PEPERONCINO'
A versioned Italian classic: garlic is blanched and emulsified with water to obtain a smooth cream. These spaghetti will make you say mamma mia!

If you only think of eating them alone or with yogurt, you are missing out on many of their possibilities.

With churrería straw potatoes, a good homemade mayonnaise and a little steamed hake with a touch of fine you can prepare a brutal salad in a matter of minutes.
SECOND: MEJILLONES WITH CIDER AND SHALLOTS
Mussels are healthy and economical mollusks. Here we prepare them in a very fast sauce of cider and shallots that, when we add their own juices, becomes a flavor bomb.

DESSERT: STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM WITHOUT REFRIGERATOR
Tired of those who brag non-stop about their homemade ice cream? You can also do it and above without having to buy a machine or have a thousand pots. Chincha rabiña for those who have not discovered it before.

MAIN COURSE: ZUCCHINI RAVIOLI IN TOMATO SAUCE
We used zucchini as a wrapper for a cheese and spinach filling. Once made, the packets of this recipe are braised in a homemade tomato sauce.

DESSERT: SEASONAL FRUIT: APRICOT
It is a relative of peach and plum, has very few calories, and a good amount of fiber that makes it a rather satiating fruit.
Sunday, June 4
MAIN COURSE: VALENCIAN PAELLA
Don't you cook paella for fear that someone from the land of flowers, light and love will tell you that it is 'rice with things'? Pay attention to Toni Novo from Casa Carmela and you will have the canonical version of this dish.
DESSERT: BRETON 'SABLÉE' WITH RICOTTA AND CHERRIES
As the Breton sablée is quite forceful, it is recommended to consume it accompanied by fruits pulling acidic that lighten the whole, such as cherries.
