Raw Food Recipe using Christophene

Christophene is a wonderful food to eat. I newly discovered that it can be eaten raw. This dish is very simple to prepare and can go with anything. Here is the recipe that I've done. It tasted really good if I do say so myself.

1 christophene
1/2 an onion
1 clove garlic
sea salt to taste

Grate christophene(the seed can be grated, as well as the skin if soft enough). Grate onion and garlic. Add sea salt. Mix thoroughly. The christophene releases its own juices when grated so expect a bit of liquid in the bowl. The liquid can be consumed as well.

I had this as part of lunch on Tuesday and topped it with a bit of tomato sauce. Here is a picture of the lunch - the christophene is whitish looking with a bit of red on top(the tomato sauce). The only things cooked in this plate are the fish and tomato sauce. I love eating raw! I need to do more though. I'm getting there.

My camera is acting up so bear with me. This is how it came out:

I attempted to do a closeup:

Enjoy! If you try this let me know how it turned out.
