Carrot & Kale Spice

#1 Carrot & Cumin

This is great favourite of ours, we have it a lot because its healthy, tasty and super easy to make. All you need is:

  • Carrots
  • Cumin
  • Orange
  • Pumpkin Seeds (Optional)

Method: Peel the carrots and then use either a julienne peeler (our preference) or a spiralizer to create carrot noodles. If you don’t have either of these to hand you can also use a standard peeler to make wider, flat carrot noodles.

Dry heat the cumin in a pan until aromatic, then mix with the juice from an orange. Mix well and then stir into the noodles.

Pumpkin seeds are a great addition but not essential.

#2 Hot Salad

Inspired by the salads served in some of our favourite Indian Restaurants… this simple rocket salad has an added spicy kick of raw chilli peppers!!

  • Rocket
  • Spring Onion
  • Chilli Pepper

#3 Raw Kale & Mushroom

This Lebanese inspired raw dish is perfect as part of a Lebanese Banquet or part of a wonderful Buddha Bowl…

  • Mushroom
  • Curly Kale
  • Dried chilli seeds (to heat preference)
  • 2tsp Coriander powder
  • 2tsp Turmeric
  • 2tsp Cumin powder
  • 1tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1tsp Ginder powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1tbsp Lemon Juice

Method: Dry fry the spices until aromatic, then remove from heat… add olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix and set aside.

Remove thick stalks from the kale, wash and rip into small pieces…Wash and slice the mushrooms and add to the kale.

Pour the oil and spice dressing over the mushrooms and kale, then massage well so the oil covers all and the mushrooms look like darker ‘cooked’ mushrooms.

Its best if this is left to stand at room temperature for a while to marinade.
