Good for Transitioning to Raw Greens Sandwich with Olive Oil Dressing
2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted (farmer's market kind is best)
2 leaves of kale, folded
cremini mushrooms, sliced
red pepper, sliced
olive oil, to taste
lemon juice, to taste
crushed garlic, to taste
cayenne pepper, to taste
1. Dressing: Blend together olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic, and cayenne pepper. Spread onto toasted bread.
2. Pile ingredients onto bread, starting with kale, followed by sturdier ingredients like carrots and mushrooms, and so on. (Sometimes I use chard instead of kale or red onion instead of sprouts.) ENJOY!
I find this sandwich great for someone transitioning to the raw foods diet because the sandwich doesn't include cooked hummus or soy. Its main ingredient is kale, which is what a lot of raw foodists consider a major source of protein and vitamins. I hope to replace the bread with napa cabbage leaves one day but am not ready to do so just yet!
