QUICK AND EASY LUNCH SALADS
Use three raw beets, peel and grate them . Grate three carrots, one kohlrabi and one peeled apple or a pear. Add spinach leaves, a few walnuts and almonds. These can be crushed. Make a dressing of the juice of two oranges, a tablespoon of techina and a two teaspoons tablespoon of honey, two teaspoons of olive oil and slat and pepper. I add one or two tablespoons of sultanas If you prefer an easy sweet dressing, use pomegranate juice with olive oil and a little parsley.
I serve this with cottage cheese on the side for a dairy meal or just good hummus with a meat meal.
BEETROOT AND BAKED POTATOES.
Cook three beets and bake four potatoes. Peel the beets and slice into cubes. Dice the potatoes, You can leave the skins on.
