'A fresh salad on the table to enjoy'

(serves 4)

Salad

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 cup sugar snaps or fresh green peas
  • 1 cup unsalted pistachios
  • Fresh parsley leaves
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • Sea or mountain salt & black pepper

Hemp dressing

  • 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp hemp butter (or any kind of seed butter, such as tahini)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil (or sesame oil)
  • 4-5 tbsp natural water
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

Salad: Cook the brown rice and when ready rinse it under natural water by using a strainer. Peel and slice the avocados and carrots, prepare the sugar peas. Chop the fresh herbs, mint and parsley leaves. Place the cooked rice, veggies and herbs in a big bowl and then add the pistachios, sesame seeds, salt and pepper.

Hemp dressing: To prepare the dressing, squeeze the lime. In a blender or mixing jar add the lime juice, hemp butter, olive oil, water and tamari and mix all the ingredients until you get a light creamy consistency. Add the dressing just before serving to keep the salad crispy.
