Chop some spinach in this salad for a healthy and tasty dish!
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- sun dried tomatoes
- half of a small red onion, chopped
- as much spinach as you like
- olive oil
Chop and mix, sprinkle olive oil and enjoy!
In a food processor or blender (we used the Vitamix to really kick the speed on high) add:
- 6 Tablespoons of nutritional yeast
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil (used to bind the nutritional yeast and sea salt to the dry, raw almonds & cashews)
- 3/4 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
Process or blend into until there are no large pieces of the almonds or cashews left. That’s all there is to this one! Refrigerate in a sealed container.
With winter starting and the flu all around us, I wanted to find ways for us to eat raw spinach. You eat it and you feel invincible! Popeye strong, full of energy and ready to do everything!
We both dislike the taste of it when raw, some of us more that others. For a good reason too, that flavor is.. overpowering ! So I have been trying to hide the spinach under other flavors, to make it easier for us to be healthy (like a set of five year olds who don’t want to eat the green leaf!)
This salad is a full meal, a light one, so give it a try if you want a delightful salad.
- 2 green onions
- 1 clove of garlic
- green pepper
- olive oil
Wash the lettuce and the spinach thoroughly. I would suggest using more lettuce than spinach, but then again your heart might not be weak as ours! Chop the green onions. One of them you will use raw. The other one you will sizzle in a frying pan with a little bit of olive oil and the garlic clove (chopped or minced) . Then you will add roughly chopped mushrooms and peppers, a pinch of cumin and thyme, then when they are soft you can add:
- Balsamic vinegar with agave syrup or
- wine or
- any other combination of sweet and sour liquids
Allow the wine or vinegar to embrace the vegetables and evaporate then add the mix into your chopped lettuce, spinach and green onion salad. Add salt and olive oil. Enjoy!
