Plant-Based Eating goes to Market
2 Salsas + rice, corn, beans and greens = FIESTA!
No oil, no animal protein. 100% Plant-Based for optimum health and weight!
You can do this at home...
3 cups chopped tomatoes
2 cups chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to taste
Divide SALSA BASE in half and place in separate bowls.
To half the base in first bowl add the following: Juice of 1 lemon, 1-2 minced jalapenos, 1-2 minced garlic cloves, minced hot chile to taste, salt to taste.
To half the base in the second bowl add the following: juice of 1/2 to 1 lime, 1 chopped mango, 1/2 red onion, red &/or yellow hot chilis (to taste).
Let the flavors blend for at least an hour if you can wait that long.
SALSA FIESTA PLATTER
Now the fun begins! On a large platter, make a nest of greens, make a mix of fresh, raw greens in season--arugala, kale, bok choy, spinach, lettuces. Now pile on lots of cooked whole grain rice. Mix together 2 cups cooked black beans, 2 cups cooked corn with one of the salsas above. Add this bean, corn, salsa mixture on top of the rice. Finish off with lots of chopped cilantro.
Use the remaining salsa as a side dish with baked, no oil chips.
Let the FIESTA begin!
