Purple Slaw, Wehani Rice Mix, Tabouli Meal
WOW! if you like colorful meals.... you will LUV this one! And this is something you can make a lot of... ahead of time... and have multiple servings in your frig... just to dish out!
When you look over my recipe pics... you will notice I DO love color.... all of my recipes have wonderful color and texture to them... this will appeal to your vision.....if something looks really G O O D.... then you are more likely to try it!
What I like about this meal is you get a lot of great fiber with the red and white cabbage in the slaw and the spinach of the tabouli and you get a lot of good protein from the bulgar in the tabouli and the walnuts in the rice.
Ok, let's get started!
As Always, I DO as much ORGANIC as possible!
Go to my recipe for TABOULI
PURPLE & WHITE SLAW
In a food processor add:
pieces of white and red cabbage and chop to a slaw consistency
Spoon out into a large bowl and add:
VERY thinly sliced red onions
Thinly sliced raw mushrooms.. or mushrooms lightly sauteed in veggie stock
1 can drained mandarin oranges (save the juice) (You can also use fresh pineapple or grapefruit. For the juice... use some apple cider vinegar! YUMM-OH!!)
Mix gently so the oranges don't get broken up too much
In the food processor or blender add:
the OJ from the oranges
4 or 5 cloves of fresh pressed garlic
a squirt of Agave Nectar
Mix and fold into the salad
1 cup Wehani
1 cup wild rice
1/2 cup brown rice
Mix with the rice in a large bowl
fresh chopped tomatoes
1 cup raisins
chopped raw walnuts
chopped raw jalapenos
There you have it!!! SO SIMPLE!! Just cut a head of iceburg lettuce in half, remove some of the center to make a bowl and serve your Tabouli in the lettuce bowl. Spoon out the rice and the slaw.. and you have a beautiful.... DEEEEE licious ......plate of low calorie, healthy goodness!!
Until Next Time......
GOOD HEALTH TO ALL!!
