Delicious Raw Marinated Vegetable Salad

Here’s a great way to serve raw veggies for maximum nutrient and enzymes levels.  Enzymes are essential for good health and are lost when we cook our food.  The more raw food you consume the more enzymes and nutrients you will absorb from your food.  If you swap one of your daily cooked meals for a raw one or ensure part of each meal is raw then this will really benefit overall health.

Ingredients: 

1 large courgette

1 red pepper

1 yellow pepper

1 small red onion

5 or 6 mushrooms

2 tbsp of olive oil

2 tbsp of sesame seed oil

1 tsp of flaw seed oil (optional)

½ tsp of garlic granules (optional)

½ tsp mixed dried herbs (or herbs of your choice) or ½ cup of fresh chopped herbs

½ tsp dried seaweed flakes (optional)

Directions: 

  1. Slice all vegetables using either a spiraliser (on the widest setting), a mandolin, the slicing function on a food blender or slice thinly with a knife.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.DSC_2144
  3. Place in the fridge to marinade for at least 2 hours, but preferably over night.  Make sure to stir everything around a couple of times.
  4. Drain off any excess oil and serve as a side salad or as a main with avocado or eggs for the non vegan of you.
