Most of you will know I eat a fair amount of raw food, not only for the huge amount of health benefits you receive from doing so but also because of it’s overall yumminess!
As such I wanted to share with you one of my favourite recipes. I particularly like this recipe as you don’t have to be big into raw food to make it, it’s really easy, really healthy and you don’t need any expensive gadgets, ingredients or even very much time to make it. It’s a great ‘use-up’ meal, meaning you can pretty much throw anything in from your fridge or cupboards that needs using up.
Raw Un-fried Rice:
1 cup wild rice (soaked)
1/2 head of green or red cabbage
1 red onion
1 tsp cloves of garlic granules or 2 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp. grated ginger (or half as much ground ginger)
2 heads of broccoli cut into small florets, stems peeled and shredded
2 large carrots shredded
1 pepper (any colour)
1 bunch parsley chopped or 1 tbsp. of dried
1 cup peas (frozen and thawed) or half a cup of peas and half a cup of sweetcorn – due to these being blanched before freezing they are not technically raw, but yummy and easily at hand anyway
1/2 cup lime or lemon juice
3/4 cup olive oil or your choice of oil
3/4 cup sesame oil (or more olive oil, if not)
1/4 cup Tamari (or just normal soy sauce if you can tolerate it)
1 1/2 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1. Soak wild rice for 48hrs in water (changing water and rinsing rice every 6-8hrs).
2. If you cannot tolerate wild rice or if you want a quicker non raw food, substitute the wild rice for brown rice, lentils or quinoa.
3. Put all vegetables (apart from peas and sweetcorn) and dressing items into a food processor and blitz until all items are about twice the size of a pea).
3. Then put this into a bowl and add the items you have left out, mix well and put into the fridge for 2hrs (or even better, overnight).
4. Mix well before serving.
5. If you cannot have any of the ingredients just substitute for another vegetable. Pretty much any veg works well in this dish.
This recipe works great as a main, a side dish or even with things like boiled eggs and avocado in.
