This dressing has flavor to knock your socks off! Lemon, balsamic vinegar, tahini, mustard, fresh parsley- I almost drool just thinking about it. Another great perk: beyond all that, you can't taste the uber-healthy flax oil :-) Serve on a colorful garden salad or as a dressing for pasta salad.
This combination of sweet beets and hot horseradish is a mild, delicious taste treat and a great side dish with grilled meats.
A twist on the presentation of the Eastern Europen dish called Tsvikly.
From Food and Drink magazine.
Hope you enjoy!
*Note, please use a very hot, prepared horseradish sauce to offset the mildness of the cream. If you do not have hot horseradish, then please be prepared for a very mild flavoured dressing!
This is an amazing recipe for fresh beets, if you don't have any fresh beets you can substitute two 15-ounce cans drained small whole beets, halved or if they are large then quarter them, but I have to say that fresh beets are better! --- for the fresh beets you can boil them or I prefer to roast them in the oven in foil in a 400°F oven for about 30 minutes or until just fork-tender --- this is just as delicious cold as it is served hot! --- prep time does not include roasting the beets and cooking the onions.
A very easy and delicious recipe from a popular spa retreat, Rancho la Puerta. It's low in calorie and fat, but packed with flavour. It's a great alternative lunch if you've been trying to squeeze in that new bikini from last summer.
My girlfriend modified this vegan chicken salad recipe from Robin Robertson's "Vegan Planet" by using tofu instead of tempeh. Can easily be made more accessible to non-vegans by using ordinary mayonnaise. I imagine this would be great with actual chicken in it as well in place of the tofu. We serve this in pita pockets.
This salad can be served as a main dish--it has a combination of grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds to provide complete proteins--or as a side dish. It is a versatile dish, too. You could easily swap out various ingredients to adjust it to your taste. For example, you could swap oranges for limes, rice for wheat berries, lentils for beans, parsley for cilantro, or roasted sweet potatoes for beets.
