Collard Wraps with Sunflower Seed Tu-No salad

spring crocusGreetings Health Fans,

Happy spring to everyone. The gardens and greenhouses are coming alive here at Camp Rawnora. I’m really enjoying the wild foraging, looking forward to finding some morel mushrooms. The retreat season is underway here at the camp. Here are a few of our upcoming events:

Here’s a timeless classic the Tu-No salad collard wrap.

The recipe is pretty simple. Dulse, which is a sea vegetable, gives it the “tuna” taste. Other sea vegetables can be substituted. Sea veggies are a great source of trace minerals including iodine which is important for thyroid function.

Tu-No Salad

2 C sunflower seeds – soaked

1 – 2 T miso (organic, unpasteurized)

2 T apple cider vinegartu-no salad

2 T lemon juice

1/4 – 1/2 C olive oil

1/2 C onion – diced

1/4 C dulse flakes

1 C celery – diced

2 T capers – add at end

1 – 2 t paprika

1/2 t salt or to taste

Place all ingredients except the capers, onions and celery into the food processor and process smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl and fold in the onions, celery and capers.

Serve in romaine lettuce or collard leaves with other fresh fixings.

Rock’n the Kelp Noodles

Still not so sure on how to prepare Kelp Noodles? Well never fear The Live Food Experience is here to guide you through your sea tangle noodle adventure. Kelp noodles are a raw vegan no cook alternative to traditional grain based noodles that require cooking. The magic of kelp noodles is that you just open the bag and they’re ready to go… well not quite. The secret I’m about to share with you will maximize your kelp noodle experience. Follow these simple steps and you will enjoy your noodles, do not follow these steps and… not so good.

  1. Open the bag
  2. Pour out the juice
  3. Squeeze the noodles
  4. Rinse the noodles
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 one more time
  6. SQUEEZE NOODLES

The most important thing to remember is that the last thing you should do to the noodles is squeeze them and squeeze them hard. This will allow them to soak up the tasty sauce you have prepared. You may be saying, “I haven’t prepared a tasty sauce.” Well I took that into consideration and thought up one for you to prepare.
