Raw Food Recipes: Marinated Mushroom Salad

 
serves 2 ~ $2.98 per serving
 

ingredients

  • 1 head leaf lettuce ($.77)
  • 10 ounces mushrooms, sliced ($2.19)
  • 1 zucchini, sliced ($.66)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced ($1.59)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped ($.15)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar ($.20)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  •  whole flaxseeds
This is a very hearty and filling salad. When I made this, I found the non-organic lettuce on sale for a terrific price. You may find prices higher in your area.
Mix
the marinade, which is the olive oil, agave, balsamic vinegar, and
garlic. Slice and chop the mushrooms, zucchini, red bell pepper, and
onion. For this recipe, I cut the zucchini into matchstick sized pieces.
Toss with the marinade in a shakeable container (I just use a large
ziplock box) and let sit for up to a couple hours. Place on teflex
sheets and dehydrate for about an hour, just until warm and slightly
softened.
Chop
the lettuce and top with the warm veggies. Mix up just a bit more
additional marinade to use as a dressing, if desired. Salt and pepper to
taste, and top with a sprinkle of whole flaxseeds.

  1. I'm slowly trying to incorporate raw food into my diet, I'm not a vegan or vegetarian by any means, just trying to be healthy! But have been trying to find raw recipes that look appetizing, and this looks and sounds amazing! I love mushrooms!

  2. Yumm! This looks so good. I love mushrooms and would be nice to try to marinade them as well. Thank you for your inspiration!
