If you’ve been sick recently or just been on the sauce a little bit too much then this is the recipe for you! I first came across this recipe a couple of years ago when my body was falling to pieces and I was willing to try just about anything to get healthy. A nutritional therapist recommended that I try this and so I gave it a go and my god did I feel good! Now the recipe that you see here today is quite different as over time I have swapped out ingredients to make it even healthier and most importantly to make it taste amazing!! Because whilst the original recipe made me feel great it definitely didn’t taste it! So here you are the new and improved Dynamite Detox Salad!💥
Ok, lets get down to the nitty gritty! I use short grain brown rice in this but you could use any grain you like, quinoa and barley work really well here too! The grain is the part that gives the carbohydrate, protein and it is also the ingredient that holds all the flavours together. Well-done Mr Rice! One of the best parts about this salad is that all of the veggies in it are raw, meaning they are loaded with vitamins and minerals but at the same time it doesn’t feel or taste like your eating a load of raw stuff! The second most important and overall best thing about this salad is the dressing. It is jam packed with flavour and is also super duper good for you! It’s loaded with calcium and because the Tamari is fermented, it’s super good for putting healthy bacteria back into your gut! Wohoooo go us!👏🏻
2 Cups Short Grain Rice Or Any Other Grain
1 Veg Stock Cube (Organic, Low Salt If Possible)
4 Cups Water
1 Cup Broccoli Chopped
½ Red/ Orange Pepper Chopped
½ Green Pepper Chopped
3 Spring Onions Chopped
Small Bunch Flat Leaf Parsley
For The Dressing:
½ Red Chilli
1 Clove Of Garlic
1-Inch Fresh Ginger
Juice Of 1 Lime
1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
2 Tsps. Tahini (Sesame Paste)
4 Tbsps. Tamari (Gluten Free Soy Sauce)
1 Tbsp. Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp. Honey / Maple Syrup
First things first! Lets whack the rice on! Put the rice into a pot with the stock cube and the water and boil for 20 mins.
Whilst the rice is cooking chop all of your veggies into very small little pieces, the smaller the better!
To make the dressing just lash all the ingredients into the food processor or nutri bullet and whizz till fully combined! Add more Tamari if it’s too sweet or more honey if its too bitter. Also if you’re giving this one to kids don’t put the chilli in as the garlic and ginger will be strong enough.
When the rice is cooked and strained, throw all of the veggies into the rice with the dressing and give it a good old mix. Pop it into nice bowls and serve with the avocado on top. That’s it easy peasy!
Just a quick note, I like to serve this with chicken or a poached egg if I’m really hungry or just plain cold! You can eat it hot or cold, I usually have it hot for dinner and then eat the leftovers cold the next day for lunch!
