Lentil, Quinoa and Raspberry Salad

When it comes down to nutrition, lentils and quinoa are without a doubt nutrient-dense food items. A simple bowl of this Lentils, Quinoa and Raspberry Salad will keep you satisfied and will honestly make your taste buds dance. I wanted to develop a sturdy salad that would make use of some wonderful raspberry vinegar I received from my friend Jamila. Her aunt and uncle own La Belle Excuse, an olive producer with olive groves in Greece. They also offer many other pantry items, like delicious vinegars, sea salt, and confitures. So here we are, experimenting with the freshness of the raspberries against the sturdiness of the lentils and quinoa. It’s a gorgeous mix!

Kamut and Orange Salad

This Kamut and Orange Salad is built with a variety of textures, a deep vinaigrette and the chewy yumminess of the grain. Kamut is actually the commercial name for khorasan wheat, a grain that is nutty in taste and twice the size of common wheat grains. I like that it lends itself so nicely to warm and saucy salads like this one. Khorasan wheat contains more proteins, lipids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals than modern wheat. Please note that it is not gluten-free, as some people seem to think. I hope you enjoy this hearty salad as much as I did!

Kamut and Orange Salad

  • Author: Karine K
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 50 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (or pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 large fennel bulbs, quartered
  • 1 red onion, quartered
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus 2 teaspoons
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked Kamut (from 1/2 cup cooked according to package directions)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Juice and segments from 4 oranges (about 4 tablespoons juice)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 320˚F (160˚C). Place the fennel, red onion and garlic cloves on a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with the 2 teaspoons olive oil, and sprinkle generously with sea salt and pepper. Place in the oven and roast for 50-60 minutes, until the fennel is tender and caramelized. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, slice all the vegetables thinly.

While the vegetables are roasting, in a small skillet, toast the almonds and fennel seeds while stirring, over medium-low heat, until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.

To assemble the salad, place the cooked Kamut, the roasted vegetables, the almonds and fennel seeds in a large bowl. Mix well. Top with the orange segments and juice, add the 1/4 cup olive oil, balsamic vinegar and basil. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper. Mix delicately. Bon appétit!

Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts

Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts | livitygardens.com
Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts | livitygardens.com

This Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts really started as a kitchen sink salad, but ended up being something I made three times in a week. So yes, it’s this good. I had kale from the farmers market that I wanted to use as well as some cherry tomatoes. I knew I wanted a grain in there, I love kale salads with grains, so I opted for spelt this time, but feel free to use freekeh, farro, or barley. Any chewy grain will do.

Salade Livity à la mangue

Livity Mango Salad Thumbnail

Cette salade est vite devenue mon assiette préférée. Quelle fraîcheur! Je la mange tous les jours ces temps-ci (oui, je sais, je suis un peu extrémiste). J’achète des jeunes coconuts frais pour en extraire la pulpe, pour une saveur éclatante. Vous pouvez, par contre, utiliser des flocons organiques, sans sucre.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 mangue, pelée et coupée en dés
  • Chair d’un 1/2 jeune coconut frais, coupée en fine lamelles
  • 1 avocat, pelé et coupé en dés
  • 1 pamplemousse, coupé en segments, avec le jus
  • 1 oignon vert, émincé
  • 2 c. à soupe de graines de citrouille crues
  • 1 bout de gingembre frais (environ 1 po.), émincé
  • 1 petite poignée de coriandre fraîche, émincée
  • Sel noir

Instructions

Dans un moyen bol à mélanger, déposer les cubes de mangue, le coconut et l’avocat. Ajouter les segments de pamplemousse et le jus (je défais les segments juste au-dessus du bol à mélanger, récupérant facilement tout le jus). Ajouter l’oignon vert, les graines de citrouille, le gingembre et la coriandre  fraîche. Bien mélanger avec les mains. Servir avec une pincée de sel noir.
