Nested Watercress Salad


To make this lovely, eye-catching, and nutritious salad, you will only need to use your hands.  No heavy machinery required!  As you will see, this delicious gourmet dish only takes a few minutes to make and requires only a few very fresh ingredients.  This salad can be served as a side dish to almost any meal, or as a tantalizing appetizer salad to introduce any lunch or supper.

For best results, make sure to use only the freshest ingredients you can find!

 To Make The Nest:

2 handfuls of fresh watercress
Juice from 1/2 of a lime
1/4 tsp of sea salt

1.  Place the watercress in a mixing bowl, together with the lime juice and the sea salt.  Massage the greens with your hands until they become tender.  (By massaging the watercress, you are not only ensuring that the seasonings are evenly distributed, you are also making it a little easier for your body to absorb the nutrients from the watercress.)

2. Using your hands, place the seasoned watercress on a plate and shape it into the form of a round nest.  Leave an empty space about the size of your fist in the center of your nest.

 To Make The Filling:

1 cup of chopped fresh spinach
1 cup of chopped fresh kale
Juice from 1/2 of a lime
1 ripe avocado, medium diced
1 tbsp of chickpea miso (soy free)
1 tbsp of hemp seeds
1/8 tsp of sea salt

1.  Place the spinach and the kale into a mixing bowl, together with the lime juice and the salt, and massage the greens with your hands until they are tender. 2.  Mash the avocado with your hands and massage the avocado into the greens.  Follow this up with the miso, until the spinach and kale are entirely covered with avocado and miso.
3.  Add the hemp seeds to the mixing bowl.  Using a spatula, mix the hemp seeds into the filling.

 To Serve The Salad:

Fresh sprouts
Cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil
Paprika

1. Take a handful of filling and shape it into a ball.
2. Place this ball of seasoned spinach and kale onto the top of the watercress, in the empty space in the middle of the watercress nest.
3. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil around the plate and sprinkle paprika on top of the salad to add color.
4. Top with fresh sprouts and enjoy!

Raw Sweet Congee

Chia seeds come from my native country Mexico. We used to served the in lemonades or just adding them into any juice and make “Agua con Chia”. The chia seed make a gelatinous effect after being soaked for a couple of minutes (around 10) and it blends with the liquid that is served. My following recipe make a yummy example for a fast and delicious breakfast.

Ingredients:
5 Tbs Chia Seeds
1/3 cup of persimmon (finely chopped)
1/3 cup of coconut (finely chopped)
1/3 cup of pomegranate grains
1 tsp of ginger
1 1/2 cup of your favorite nut milk

 

Place the ingredients into a soup bowl and add the nut milk.

Mix the milk with the fruit and store on the fridge for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Facts: Chia seeds have 5 times more calcium than milk, so in this serving you at least have 50% of the RDA of calcium, 60% of iron, 60% of magnesium, and of course omega 3 and 6? Well you get more than 500%!! yes more than 16 grms of Omega 3.

Raw Vegan Mexican Pizza

 

I fell in love with the use of buckwheat for making live pizzas! This is my Mexican version of raw pizza, using a spice chipotle tomato sauce and avocados. The crust took 20 hours to be ready, since Hong Kong is more humid, this process takes a bit more time than usual.

The crust is firm and very tasty, with chunks of sun dried tomatoes.

 

And of course, some nice Kalamata olives!

Ok Guys, here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

1.5 Cups of buckwheat groats

1/4 cup of olive oil

1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes

2/3 cup of carrot pulp

2/3 cup of golden flax seeds

1 tsp of sea salt or celtic salt.

Soak the buckwheat overnight. Then place the flax seeds to soak for about half an hour. Place all ingredients on a high speed blender and mix until smooth. You can do this process in batches to make it easy for your blender.

Remove then wet your hands, place it on your dehydrator teflex sheet and start making a dough, the use a spatula or hands, and make a 0.4 cm thick circle. Keep hands moist to allow easy manipulation of dough.

At the end, use your fingertips on the edges, to make a nice design.

Dehydrate for first 4 hrs at 140F, then lower the temperature to 115 for other 4 hours. Remove after?? this 8hrs from the teflex sheet, and place on tray and continue the dehydration at 115F for other 6 hrs, until desired hardness of crust.

Keeps for a month on fridge!
