Recently, I’ve been attracted to cilantro. I simply like the taste, but what makes it even more attractive is its health benefits (check out this link for a great video about them).
For a simple way to enjoy it, simply boil a small pot of water and add a handful of chopped cilantro. Allow it to steep for 5 minutes then strain and drink as a tea to assist with digestion.
For something a little bit more involved but definitely easy and worthwhile to make, check out my recipe below.
Organic Nutty Salad
You can make as little or as much of this salad. Toss together these ingredients and serve with my easy frittata.
- Organic mixed greens
- Celery, chopped
- Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds
- Cilantro, chopped
- Cherry tomatoes, halved
- Sprinkle of nutritional yeast (learn more about nutritional yeast by clicking here)
- Simple dressing of extra virgin olive oil and sea salt
- 1 small onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 medium-large organic potato, halved lengthwise then sliced into thin half circles
- 1 small red pepper, seeded and chopped
- 4 eggs
- Handful of chopped cilantro
- Sprinkle of nutritional yeast
Use organic olive oil or coconut oil or non-stick spray to prepare your pan. Use medium heat to saute onions and garlic a few minutes, then add potato and stir occasionally until brown ~ about 15 minutes, add red pepper. Crack 4 eggs into a deep bowl and whisk together until combined. Pour over potato mixture, turn heat to low and put on low heat, then let cook on low heat for approximately 10 minutes. Sprinkle cilantro and nutritional yeast on top, then slip frittata on a plate and enjoy with your organic nutty green salad.
