Raw vegan nutty miracle salad with tuna steak and sun dried tomato hummus.

Leave a Comment
I love to blog about all my interests... and one of my interests that I haven't blogged much about is cooking and food. I love to create fun, and vibrant recipes which are full of flavour. This is exactly what you think it is: a big, hearty, generous, and delicious nutty salad. It features avocado, tomatoes, brown whole wheat giant couscous, spinach leaves, fennel, walnuts.  This raw salad is excellent (high in essential fats and vitamins to give you that gorgeous healthy glow). You can add any type of vegetables  to this dish and works perfectly with a fresh tuna steak (my fave) and a dollop of homemade sundried tomato hummus.  

I also really love to mix marinated kale into this salad with sweet juicy pomegranates and a sprinkling of crunchy sunflower seeds to create a sweet crunch to the dish – I add in roasted squash or sweet potato, toasted cashews or some quinoa to make it more of a hearty warming meal. 

Kale is a seriously delicious superfood... containing more calcium than milk per calorie and a lot of iron!  In addition, it contains vitamin K intake ( important blood sugar regulation),  vitamin A and vitamin C intake (both of which support bone and skin health, as well as strengthening the immune system). If this wasn’t enough it’s also packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, omega-3 fatty acids and fibre. I always love to mix kale in with some steamed veg or roast it under the grill with a drizzle of coconut oil for that perfect crunch. 

For the superfood bowl:

- 5 big handfuls of kale (it shrinks a lot when cooked)
- 1 red pepper
- handful of walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, edamame beans 
- sprinkle of chia seeds
- 1 avocado
- 1  carrot
- spinach leaves
- a large dollop of homemade sundried tomato hummus
- slices of fennel, cucumber, strawberries and beetroot
- brown wholewheat giant couscous or quinoa 

For the Dressing: 

- teaspoon of manuka honey 
- half a lemon and lime
- 1 teaspoon of almond butter
- 1/2 a teaspoon of tahini 

For the sundried tomato hummus: 

- 1 can of chickpeas (I used a 15 ounce tin) drained and rinsed
- 2 large handfuls of sundried tomatoes 
- 3 tablespoons of water 
- 1/4 teaspoon of smoked paprika 
- The juice of 1 and 1/2 juicy lemons
- 2 teaspoons of tahini
- 1 small garlic clove
- salt to taste

  1. Add all the veg, wholewheat couscous into a large bowl. 
  2. Fry the tuna steak in a pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil. Season to taste. 
  3. Finally place the succulent tuna steak with a slice of lemon on top of your salad. 
  4.  Layer on your desired toppings, drizzle on the dressing and a large dollop of my healthy sundried tomato hummus for the perfect warming dish. 
  5. Add sweet potato fries  or roast butternut squash if you like! 

I must admit, this dish is so easy and simple to make and it is packed full of vitamins and minerals to keep your hair skin and nails healthy and glowing. I just LOVE it and I hope you like it too. 

Please let me know what you think of this recipe! I will be putting up more soon.
