On a veggie boosted food regime and making a conscious effort to eat healthier and include more greens into meals.
I love salads, and ate only ital food for 5 years before, so it’s not a foreign feeling, but am not so familiar with different ways of preparing green meals. Over the weekend, I had a craving for a salad and tried making one a new way – using 50% steamed and 50% raw veg.
Y’all, it was delicious! The natural flavours of the vegetables fuse together nicely, and the soft and medium-done texture combo makes it somewhat more filling that an all-raw salad. So I thought to share the prep-steps with you here:
1 hand of kale
2 stalks of broccoli
1/5 sweet pepper
1 small carrot
5 small okras
1 think stalk of thyme
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
2 parsley leaves
1 blade of chive
tiny bit of finely-diced red pepper
sprinkle of salt and black pepper
sprinkle of spices
- Grater carrot, cheese, and garlic. Dice sweet peppers and chives. Shred thyme stalk. Set aside.
- Slice the broccoli into small bouquets and kale (keep okra whole) and steam in a saucepan (cover on) for 3-5 minutes (so they still have a crunch.)
- Add salt and black pepper to saucepan. Remove from heat when ready.
- In a clean salad bowl, combine everything together – sprinkle cheese, splash sesame seed oil and stir together.
- Get a plate and enjoy.
