Mock Tabouleh Gluten Free

Submitted by: DOTSLADY

Introduction

This is also a raw recipe. If you made this without the cod liver oil, it'd also be strict vegetarian/vegan. High in Vitamins A, C and E, potassium.

Ingredients

    58g avocado, chopped
    7g or about 1T chia seeds
    1 clove garlic, pressed or minced fine
    172g or 1 red pepper, chopped fine
    45g or 5 baby carrots, shredded
    45g or 8 garlic stuffed green olives (black would have been good/better I think, but I got these at TJMaxx)
    28g or 1oz brocco sprouts
    39g or to taste purple onion, chopped fine
    10g or 1/3 c parlsey, chopped fine
    10g or 1/3 c cilantro, chopped fine
    10g or 1T cod liver oil (I used Nordic Naturals - orange flavor)
    20g or 2T olive-type oil (I used Olivado Omega Plus Avocado/Olive/Flaxseed oil I got from TJMaxx)

Directions

I'm telling ya, you really need a chopping day when you cook fresh foods for recipes! I really spent longer cause I'm a slow-poke and I was preparing other food, but if you're more prepared with prechopped food, this would assemble quicker.

I made this with ingredients I had on hand. If I'd had some sprouted or cooked quinoa, I'd have added it for protein, too. If I'd have had a tomato (salmonella scare) I'd have added it. Or, if I'd have had an English cucumber (seedless), I'd have added it. Tabouleh is flexible and really you can chop your preferred veggies and see how it goes.

If I were to make it next time, I'd use 1 less Tbsp of the olive-type oil - wasn't necessary and kinda drowned out the lemon/lime flavor, which I personally prefer.

I hope you like garlic, cause it's strong when fresh- if you don't, you might want to omit. Garlic and onions are good for your blood though ;0)

I dolloped some on Boston lettuce and made a wrap out of it (Boston aka butter lettuce is strong yet flexible). Next time I'll spread some hummus on the lettuce before the "dollopping".

Makes 6 almost 3oz servings.

(If I were not in a hurry/hungry, I'd have soaked the chia seeds a bit and added more cause they're loaded with protein and fiber.)
