WILD RICE & WALNUT SALAD

WILD RICE & WALNUT SALAD (ALK,GF)

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

2 cups wild rice

1 finely chopped red bell pepper

3 green stalks green onion (chopped)

½ cup chopped cilantro

¼ cup lime juice

1 tbsp grapeseed oil

½ cup chopped walnuts 

1 cup chopped organic tomatoes

1 cup finely chopped kale

½ cup raw pumpkin seeds

¼ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

1 tsp salt or to taste

1/2 cup green olives (chopped)

 

DIRECTIONS:

Soak the rice overnight. 

(NOTE: Soaking the rice will help to increase the absorption of minerals and thereby improve your digestion process. Also, soaking the rice, decreases the cooking time).

Place the rice in a medium-size saucepan with 3-4 cups of water. Bring to the boil, then allow to simmer for 40 to 55 minutes or until the grains are tender. 

Then, place the rice in a large bowl and allow it to cool down.

Next, place the oil in a moderately heated frying pan or skillet.

Sauté the onions and bell peppers for 2 minutes.

Transfer the sautéed vegetables to the bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well. Garnish with chopped olives.
