Papaya Lime Carpaccio with Mint Pesto
Papain in the papaya is the perfect digestive aid! The protein-splitting enzyme supports intestinal activity and purifies and boosts the metabolism. Extra vitamin C from the papaya promotes fitness and ensures firm connective tissue.
This carpaccio can be topped with some low-fat cream cheese. This will add a portion of protein that is very filling!

Halve the papaya lengthwise and remove the core with a teaspoon.
Peel the papaya halves and cut the flesh into approximately 1/2-inch thick slices.
Rinse the lime in hot water and wipe dry. With a peeler, shave zest into wide strips, then cut crosswise into very fine strips (julienne).
Finely chop half of the lime strips.
Squeeze out lime juice and drizzle 1-2 teaspoons over papaya slices.
Rinse mint, shake dry and pluck leaves. Reserve some leaves for garnish. Put remaining leaves in a mortar with the chopped lime zest and 1 teaspoon water and grind to a fine paste.
Finely chop the cashews and add to the mint pesto.
Arrange the papaya decoratively on a plate and spoon the pesto over the slices. Garnish with mint leaves and lime strips and serve.
