High Protein Gluten Free Tabouli Recipe (Tabbouleh) from True Healing Source

Hi Beautiful Souls!

Today I am sharing a recipe for my version of High Protein Gluten Free Tabouli Salad (Tabbouleh) (low carb Tabouli Salad) and it is naturally vegan/vegetarian friendly! This recipe can be doubled to make a larger batch to share with friends and family.

I’ve been wanting to try Tabouli Salad for a while however I normally use alternative flours in my cooking and the normal Tabouli Salad recipe calls for couscous which is wheat based. So, I created a wheat free, gluten free version using quinoa instead!

I feel this alternative makes the recipe better on your digestion and a healthier choice overall. Gluten has been found to be linked with inflammation and an unhealthy gut biome and leaky gut.

I hope you enjoy this alternative version!

Of course you can buy a version of Tabouli Salad (Tabbouleh) at your local market like trader Joe’s near the fresh produce section along with hummus and other items.

But, I always prefer to make homemade when possible as I can avoid additional chemicals and ingredients that are just not required. And, the energy you put into your creation is high vibes and better for your body, mind and spirit! Respect your body…

You will need the following ingredients list for this low carb Tabouli Salad (Tabbouleh) and the dressing:

Salad Ingredients

1 cup quinoa (cooked)
½ cucumber (finely chopped)
2 green onions (bulb and stock finely chopped)
6-7 fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)
1 bunch curly parsley (Italian or regular parsley is fine also) approximately ¼ cup

Dressing Ingredients

2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice strained through mesh sieve
4tbsp sunflower oil (I prefer sunflower over olive oil since it is milder and slightly sweet)
Pinch of salt and pepper to taste

Mix all fresh ingredients together in a medium size bowl.  

You can use a small mason jar to mix dressing ingredients together before gently pouring over the salad mix. Toss or mix with large spoon until dry ingredients are fully covered with dressing. 

Let stand in fridge for about an hour before serving to let the spices and other ingredients work their magic together! Enjoy as a side, alone or wrapped in lettuce or with pita chips or pita bread. I added a garnish of Trader Joe’s dolmades because they just taste great with this salad! 

SERVINGS: This recipe makes approximately 3 cups.

Vegan Balela Salad Recipe from True Healing Source

Hi Beautiful Souls!

Today I am sharing a recipe for my version of Balela Salad and it is naturally vegan/vegetarian friendly! This recipe can be doubled to make a larger batch to share with friends and family.

I recently tried some already made balela salad from Trader Joe’s and if you all know me, you know that I prefer to make things from scratch, but trying things from a store can give you a small taste of things to see if you might like them before making them at home.

You can print the PDF version of this recipe at the bottom of the page

Well, needless to say the one from my local Trader Joe’s hit the spot and so the next day I made some at home. I tweeked a recipe I found online and here is my version. Enjoy Loves!

You will need the following ingredients list for the salad and the dressing:

Salad Ingredients

1 15 oz can chickpeas (drained and peeled *see notes below)
¼ red bell pepper (cored and chopped small)
1-2 green onions (bulb and stock finely chopped
¼ cup finely chopped Italian parsley (curly or regular parsley works fine too)
1-2 whole vine ripe large tomatoes (can use other tomatoes based on your preference)
½ jalapeno (finely chopped)
1/8 fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)

Dressing Ingredients

¼ cup sunflower oil (I prefer sunflower over olive oil since it is milder and slightly sweet)
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice strained through mesh sieve
½ tsp ground sumac spice
Salt pepper to taste

Alternative: If you prefer a spicier version of this Balela Salad you can add a pinch of crushed red pepper or other pepper of your choice.  

Use a large bowl to mix together the drained and peeled chickpeas and spices and set aside.  

You can use a small mason jar to mix dressing ingredients together before gently pouring over the salad mix. Toss or mix with large spoon until dry ingredients are fully covered with dressing. 

Let stand in fridge for about an hour before serving to let the spices and other ingredients work their magic together! Enjoy as a side, alone or wrapped in lettuce. 

SERVINGS: This recipe makes approximately 3 cups and can be doubled.

*NOTE: Drain and rinse chickpeas, soak in hot water for about 10 minutes to loosen skin. Gently squeeze chickpeas with the tips of your fingers to release skin (takes about 5 minutes, and I find is better for digestion and less bloating).

And, I hit the jackpot and mixed it up a bit and this came out so freakin’ amazing and really spicy! Enjoy!

I think it is the best thing I have ever made! I can only imagine the healing qualities of this soup!

Vegan Spicy Cauliflower Masala Recipe with Avocado

INGREDIENTS LIST

2 TBL Coconut oil
10 oz Shredded or chopped carrots
1 Large potato chopped
1 Large yellow onion finely chopped
2-3 Large garlic cloves chopped or pressed
1 Teaspoon fresh ginger finely grated
1 TBL garam masala
1/2 Tsp cumin powder
1 Tsp turmeric powder
1/4 Tsp cinnamon
1/2 Tsp cayenne pepper powder
1 Full head of fresh cauliflower chopped into small pieces
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes including liquid
4-5 cups vegetable broth*

DIRECTIONS

Lightly steam the cauliflower and carrots together for about 5 minutes to tenderize.


While you are steaming the cauliflower and carrots, in a separate large pot heat the coconut oil over medium heat and saute the onion, potatoes and garlic for 3-5 minutes just until the onion is tender and translucent. Add the remainder of the spices and stir and saute for another minute or so before adding the steamed cauliflower and carrots. Stir together and let the flavors and aroma meld together for about 4-5 minutes allowing a little to stick to the bottom of the pan without burning. This creates a delicious flavor when you add the vegetable broth.

Add the vegetable broth while scraping the bottom of the pan to mix in the reduced flavors and spices.

Continue cooking on low for about 30 minutes. If you like a soup with more broth you can add an additional cup or 2 of vegetable broth, otherwise this soup is a little thick and soaks up the liquid as it remains in the fridge.

Serve with sliced or chopped avocado on top. The cream texture and flavor of the avocado is wonderful and delicious compliment to the spiciness of this amazing cauliflower masala soup!

Kapha Dosha Breakfast Ideas – Alternative to Oats

Knowing and understanding your Dosha type can be very beneficial in shifting the health of your body and even releasing excess unwanted pound and weight as well as reducing inflammation in the body which contributes to Dis-Ease.

If you listen in to really hear what your body is trying to tell you, in many cases you will probably gravitate toward foods that are the most beneficial for you anyway. And, in my experience when you begin consuming foods that are healthy, your body will crave more of them! And, you will actually naturally release the cravings for unhealthy sugar laden, high carbohydrate foods. Win! Win!

Coconut C’Oats

Made with riced cauliflower, coconut oil, cinnamon, turmeric, coconut milk, and homemade flaxseed “eggs”.

Shown here with additional Esti vegan yogurt and fresh organic blueberries and sprinkled with shaved coconut and raw sunflower seeds.

However, in today’s society many people feel rushed and stressed out and eat on the run, choosing quick and unhealthy “foods” for their body and for their family to consume as well.

When you feel stressed and your stress hormones are in overdrive, you can crave foods that are simply not healthy such as sugar and high carbohydrate items that feel good for a few moments (like a drug) and then you crash after (like coming down from a drug high).

This vegan/vegetarian friendly breakfast idea is best for Kapha Dosha types and can be found in a beautiful book by Sahara Rose Ketabi called Eat Feel Fresh.

In her book she teaches all about the different Dosha types and has a ton of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between for each type and some recipes that fit all Dosha types. Her book is amazing and has tons of information about Ayurvedic living.

I would love to hear your feedback once you try this recipe!
