RAW SPROUTS SALAD

February 3, 2013

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Contrary to popular belief, making raw food does NOT necessarily take longer than making cooked food. Yes, it does take time to chop or slice the vegetables, but so does it if one is going to cook the vegetables. When it comes to raw recipes that require dehydrating, yes, it does take long to dehydrate, but it usually only takes minutes of hands-on preparation.

This sprout salad does not even require any chopping and it is great for a nutrition packed lunch ready in 10 minutes ! (excluding sprouting time …)

Sprouts salad

Serves 2 :

about 1 cup alfalfa sprouts

about 1 cup china rose radish sprouts

about 1/4 cup sprouted spelt berries

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/4 tsp Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt

1/4 tsp dried red chilli flakes (optional)

4 large handfuls rocket salad

2 small handfuls walnut pieces

a dozen cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Enjoy.

AVOCADO AND NORI SALAD

October 27, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Avocado and nori go so well together : that is what makes avocado sushis so wonderful. Half an avocado with a couple of nori sheets is one of my favourite snacks.

Avocados are sooo nutritious. They are rich in healthy fats and help the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. Avocados provide good amounts of numerous essential nutrients, including fibre (10g in 150g flesh – about 1 big avocado), potassium, Vitamins C, E, K, B6 and folic acid.

A couple of years ago I actually had avocado and gomasio for dinner almost every night for about 2 months, while refurbishing my kitchen. That is how much I love avocados … 

Add nori, salad greens, sprouts a dash of olive oil and apple cider vinegar, and you get a delicious lunch.

For 2 :

1 salad

2 avocados, diced

about 10g green nori sprinkles or sheets torn to little pieces

2 large handfuls of sprouts of your choice (alfalfa and broccoli for example)

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Mix all ingredients, enjoy.

QUICK RAW SPROUTS MUESLI BREAKFAST

October 9, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Did you know you could eat your sprouts for breakfast and start the day with a nutrition boost ?

I don’t know why this one took me so long. I always associating sprouts to savoury salads, soups and wraps.

Sprouts are easy to digest and are rich in all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins and phytochemicals necessary for a germinating plant to grow. Sprouts contain these nutrients in a highly bio available and concentrated form. It can’t be bad to have these amazing little wonders for breakfast too !

For 2 :

2 kiwis

1 pear

2 dozens grapes

or a total of about 2 cups of fresh seasonal and organic fruits or berries of your choice or even frozen

2 handfuls clover sprouts

about 1 tbsp activated sunflower seeds (soaked to start sprouting, then dehydrated)

about 1 tbsp chopped hazelnuts

about 1 tbsp buckwheaties (sprouted, then dehydrated buckwheat groats)

about 1 tbsp dessicated coconut chips

a few Thompson raisins

1 cup almond milk

Wash and prepare the fruits : chop the pear and the kiwi into small bite-size pieces, slice the raisins in half and divide into 2 cute breakfast bowls. Add the sprouts. Top with sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, buckwheaties, coconut chips and raisins. Serve with almond milk.

LIGHT SPROUTS SALAD RECIPE

October 4, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

This is a super tasty light mixed greens and sprouts salad to serve for snack, tea or a light lunch.

I made it for a birthday meal yesterday, to let the birthday cake be the star of the day, and also because a whole meal of starter, main course and birthday cake (recipe to follow …) would have just been too much :

Per person :

about 100g mixed salad greens and edible flowers (I used rocket, mizuna, baby spinach, baby lettuce, Nasturtium leaves and flowers)

about 100g sprouts ( I used clover sprouts – use your favourite or which ever you have on hand)

a few pieces of fresh fruits and berries (I used fresh fig and raspberry I have left from making the cake)

1 small handfull walnut halves

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar* (not raw)

crystal salt or sea salt anfreshly crushed black pepper to taste

Simply dress plates by layering the greens, then the sprouts, and finally the fruits / berries and walnuts. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing.

Because it would be so quick and easy, I spent all the time I needed to make a birthday cake that was extra special (watch this space for the recipe). And then the salads were ready in no time.
