TLT and lentil salad lunch at the park. <3<3
Lunch: as far as raw foods go, this dish is in my Top 5 of everything I’ve tried, thus far. Super easy to make and delicious. I eat it for lunch or side dish to dinner quite often.

Sprouted Lentil Salad - By: Rita Romano
Advanced Prep: 2 or 3 days for lentils: Immediate Prep: 25 min
3 cups lentils, sprouted
1/2 red onion, minced
1 young parsnip, shredded
1/2 yellow pepper, minced
1 tablespoon orange peel, grated
1/4 cup tahini
1 or more lemons, juiced
Bragg Liquid Aminos (*I religiously use tamari as to avoid msg.)
1/2 bunch parsley, cleaned, stemmed, mined
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Combine the lentil sprouts, onion, parsnip, yellow pepper, and orange peel and set aside. Blend the tahini, lemon juice, cayenne and Bragg Liquid Aminos or soy sauce* with enough water to make a thin dressing. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the parsley and thyme. Pour the dressing over the lentil salad and enjoy.
Lunch: sun burger, spinach cuke salad, italian rawsage neatballs (raw).
Lunch: I visited Eastern Market this weekend and got some goodies, the best being the Zensational Dressing made by the Buddhist monks at the Detroit Zen Center. All of the food they sell is vegan and raw. And most importantly, incredibly delicious.
