Spicy Live Salad With Lentil

GoodVeg on Squidoo shares recipes, news and information relating to a healthy vegan and vegetarian diet. It's an excellent resource to healthy information and recipes! I recently created an article that contains my latest fermenting recipe that I felt was worth sharing. We were literally counting down the days when we could crack open the fermented zucchini and onion mix! The recipe below is very tasty - give it a try and enjoy good healthy and flavorful food!

Spicy Live Salad With Lentil Recipe
Serves 1-2 
Prep Time 5 minutes! 
∙ 1 organic tomato 
∙ a handful of organic cilantro 
∙ 1 cup of cooked organic French green lentils*
∙ 1/2 cup of fermented organic onion mix (red onion, leeks, garlic and celery) 
∙ 1/2 cup of fermented organic zucchini mix (zucchini and cucumber) 
∙ organic cayenne pepper 
∙ non-treated pink sea salt 
∙ organic black pepper 
∙ organic crushed red pepper 

*Prepare lentils ahead of time. Pre-soak lentils over night. To cook, simply boil in water until slightly tender and drain. Let cool before using for recipe. Cooking time about 20 minutes.

1. On a chopping board, dice tomatoes into small chunks and place in a large mixing bowl.
2. Chop cilantro into small pieces and add to large mixing bowl. 3. Add cooked green lentils and fermented vegetables to mixing bowl.
4. Sprinkle cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper* onto vegetables and mix ingredients.
5. Add crushed red peppers and continue mixing until all ingredients are mixed well with spices.
6. Serve in two bowls and enjoy!

*I mixed black pepper, sea salt and cayenne pepper in a small pepper shaker so it's easier to use.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you tightly seal the lid, on the fermented veggies that are left behind in the jars, after you've measured out how much you will use. This will prevent mold. Also DO NOT put the jars in the refrigerator because you will kill the bacteria and you will have defeated the purpose of fermenting in the first place.
