I have to apologize to you all, I’ve been away from this blog for quite a while. I recently quit my job and took a new one which is great except that I’m now commuting 2 to 2 1/2 hours a day to and from it. I’m also still trying to finish my MBA. Needless to say, this cuts into my cooking and blogging time! So the frequency at which I post will likely be less but I will still be sharing good real food recipes that I find as often as I can! This dish makes is really great to take to work for lunch.
Half a head of broccoli, cut into florets
Half a head of cauliflower, cut into florets
4 ripe avocados
2 small carrots, sliced into coins
1 cup chopped purple cabbage
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 tablespoons fresh parsley, roughly chopped
4 tablespoons hemp seeds
1 teaspoons chili powder
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons
Unrefined sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Place the broccoli and cauliflower into a steamer basket and steam over boiling water until just fork tender. Remove from the steamer basket and arrange on plates. Place the avocados into a bowl and gently toss with the carrot, cabbage, garlic, parsley, hemp seeds, chili powder, olive oil, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mixture between the plates, placing alongside the broccoli and cauliflower.
I found this recipe in my favorite Hungry For Change cookbook. It’s a good one! Happy cooking!
