Organic Vegetarian Salad Recipe
Two hard-boiled natural or native eggs (optional if you’re vegan or too impatient)
Organic bacon bits alternative
2 natural hearts of romaine
Natural shredded cheese or cheese alternative (your choice; either yellow or orange cheeses are great)
2 vegetarian breaded chicken patties
2 organic tomatoes
1 natural red pepper
Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. In the meantime, completely rinse romaine hearts, then pat them dry with a towel.
Tear off any brown areas to compost them, then bunch the romaine together with your hand and reduce it into horizontal slices, working from the tip to the butt. Repeat for second heart of romaine. Compost the butts.
Cube tomatoes and red peppers. Compost the tomato core and red pepper cap and innards. Whilst you’re chopping, reflect upon a quote from Thich Nhat Hanh: “We have to eat joyful eggs from happy chickens.”
When the water boils, gently drop in eggs. Boil for 3 minutes or till they’re hard-boiled. In the meantime, spread the sliced romaine hearts evenly between two plates. (This serves two, in case you haven’t already guessed.)
Cook the vegetarian chicken patties according to package instructions, both in the microwave in case you’re super hungry and have to eat soon, or in the oven if you want them to be extra crunchy. (Of course, in case you cook them within the oven, make that the first step before boiling the eggs.) Reduce the patties into slices once they’re done, then prepare the slices on each plate of romaine.
Rinse the eggs under cold water till they’re cool enough to deal with. Chop the eggs, or use an egg slicer and pretend it’s your least favourite politician’s head.
Sprinkle natural bacon bits alternative, cheese or cheese alternative, red peppers, tomatoes and croutons evenly onto every salad. Actually, don’t do it evenly–sneak only a few extra goodies onto your salad.
You need to use pre-packaged natural croutons, otherwise you could possibly find crunchy natural or local baguette chips that you would be able to crumble onto the salad. And if you’re in a pinch, you’ll be able to simply crumble some organic crackers or tortilla chips that you may already have readily available.
The natural produce you use on this hearty salad is as limitless as your creativeness. You too can try diced cucumber, shredded carrots, sugar snap peas–the checklist goes on and on.
This natural salad is absolutely great with organic thousand island dressing. It is very healthy and delicious. You can try mixing organic ranch and natural vinaigrette! Chow down!
