I am always glad, if I can find out some alternative to salads or salad bowls. In our eBook – Raw in the kitchen – which you can download for FREE here we shared with you one fantastic cauliflower ‘’Indian’’ recipe or Unbaked Loaf, which is unlike this recipe without nuts. And because my goal is to always prepare meals not just with great taste but also in order to have benefits for my body and also be beneficial in the context of building and regeneration of muscles, I decided to share with you this delicious recipe, because all mentioned criteria above are met. And by the way, again it is a quickie. The preparation does not take more than 10 minutes including cleaning your dishes, ou yeah !
NOT JUST SPORT BENEFITS !
Cauliflower is simply excellent source of protein, carbs., minerals and vitamins. In one portion of cauliflower (lets say around 350g) you can find almost 100% of the daily dose one of the essential amino acid called – lysine! Along with other ingredients it will give to your body more than 100% from the other essential amino acids. In the world of vitamins it will charge you by vitamin C (more than 100% of the daily dose), by vitamin B9 and H. In regards of minerals it consist high amount of potassium which helps you with regeneration and muscle fiber recovery. It is also great source of magnesium which on the other hand protects you against muscle cramps, which can come after very intensive workout. What I found the most fascinating was the amount of natural plant based lecithin (which is on the other hand source of choline). Lecithin and choline is a key component for managing memory and muscle activity – amen. Finally the scientists found out that people tend to have at least 1 time per week a portion of cauliflower reducing the risk of developing tumors up to 52%. Well, I don’t know about you, but absolutely convinced me to have at least 2 portion of cauliflower (700g) at least 2 times per week, right
But enough talk, lets “cook”.
1-2 tomatoes (can be also sun-dried) and a little bit of red bell pepper
Add salt, pepper and lemon juice as you like and pour the cauliflower of lukewarm water
75g cashews (soaked over the night)
1 tbsp of date paste
1 tbsp of nutrition yeasts
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp of apple cider
½ – 1 clove of garlic
100 – 150 ml of water
a) Blend everything except cauliflower, tomatoes and red bell pepper in high speed blender and make it creamy.
b) Cut cauliflower to small pieces. As cauliflower is same as broccoli one of the hard-to-digest vegetable, pour the cauliflower of lukewarm water in order to make it easier to digest. But not too warm in order you will not destroy the beneficial nutrients. In the end you can drizzle the cauliflower with little bit of lemon juice.
dc Pour the creamy sauce over the cauliflower and sprinkle the tomatoes, red bell pepper, hard grinded pepper and salt all over it as well.
ENJOY & BUILD THE MUSCLES ON RAW FOOD !
