Yummiest Superfood Salad Recipe With Indigo Herbs Giveaway

by

After a bit of thinking, this is the best title I could have thought of. Yup. There’s so much goodness in this salad, that they won’t all fit in the title line. I think I mentioned this before, that my favourite salads are all a combination of both vegetables and fruits. The fruit always add a twist, a sweet kick to the dish. I love coming up with new and unusual combinations and keep varying my favourite, wholesome ingredients. My favourite supplier for healthy and organic ingredients is Indigo Herbs Of Glastonbury and I discovered them last year (read about it here: Cristmas Bon Bons With Dates And Walnuts). For this recipe I used mainly their products.

But why is this a SUPERFOOD salad? Because it contains an extremely dense concentration of vital nutrients, plant based protein (lentil and quinoa) vitamins (vitamin A, K, C, E, B6, B1, B2, manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium – and that’s only KALE ), antioxidants, good fats (seed mix) healthy enzymes and fibre.

The best thing about it, it’s not a big deal to prepare it. The only extra step is really to soak the lentils for about 2 hours before cooking. This superfood salad can be both a main meal or a side dish and also can be paired with practically anything. The recipe serves 4 people as a main dish.

Ingredients: 

150g brown lentils

100g tricolour quinoa

100g fresh kale, washed and chopped into small strips

1 medium carrot, peeled, and julienned

2 ripe nectarines

4 handful of goji berries

4 tbsp of gourmet seed mix for salads

salt and pepper to taste

For the dressing:

2 tsp of harissa paste

1 tsp of honey

splash of lime juice

1 tbsp of white wine vinegar

2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Before cooking, soak the lentils for 2 hours, it will reduce cooking time. Rinse them, add water and salt, then cook them for 30-40 minutes, until they are tender. At the same time you might want to cook the quinoa too: rinse it, add about double amount of water and some salt, then cook it for 15 minutes. They are ready when they loose their little “tail”. Julienne the carrot (cut them into matchstick size) and chop the kale. Prepare the dressing. Add them all to a salad bowl when the cooked ingredients cooled down and mix the dressing in. Cut the nectarines into long pieces. Serve it on a plate, adding the nectarines last, sprinkle with the mixed seeds and the goji berries.
