This salad made of root vegetables with carrot is ideal for this mid-season. These vegetables are inexpensive, but they are not presented in a warm but refreshing form with sprouted seeds. You will love the very tasty and antioxidant black rice.
It’s March! I love this month because my birthday is on March 22nd and we are closer to spring, my favorite season. This is obviously my favorite season with all the flowers everywhere, Pennsylvania is sublime. I can see a lot of gardening in the city where I live, it’s wonderful. However, it is still a bit chilly. If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen in my story that we had a snowstorm this weekend with very, very cold temperatures. This is why spring vegetables are not yet available, they are not normally even planted yet. So you still have to eat the winter vegetables! For example carrots and cabbages.
I love grated carrots! In France, I found them found everywhere. In supermarkets, in fine groceries or even expensive caterers. It’s very simple, but we like it in France. Unlike the United States, we can find them ready with a sauce. It’s less common here. I can easily find them already grated but not always accompanied by the sauce. Afterwards, it is not something I need because it is very simple (and even better) to make it homemade.
But for today, I wasn’t going to offer you a simple recipe of grated carrots. I made a salad with red cabbage and my favorite rice: black rice. I love this rice because it is one of the tastiest rice I have tasted, but most of all, it is the most antioxidant rice that exists. To add more and more benefit to this salad, I added on top some sprouted seeds that I love. You saw it last week in my roasted carrot salad. I know, lots of carrots on this blog, but I like to eat seasonal product.
You will notice that I want to make Mondays a healthy and vegetarian cooking day. You know why? Because my weekends are often made of less healthy cooking and heavier. In addition, I completely agree with the meatless Monday. We need to reduce our consumption of meat.
I hope you like this new healthy recipe! Personally, I really love it, simple to make, just a few ingredients and delicious. Do not hesitate to follow me on Instagram and tag me if you make the recipe, I will love it. Have a beautiful week.Print
