Serves: 1 large salad
 
Ingredients
  • 1 medium large zucchini, spiralized
  • coconut oil spray
  • 1 generous handful thin asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ a medium leek, sliced thin
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced thin
  • ½ orange bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 handful fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 cup protein of choice. I used Beyond meat but other suggestions would be tempeh, chickpeas, or baked tofu.
  • 1" fresh ginger
  • 1 tangerine, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon powdered peanut butter
  • ¼ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
Instructions
  1. spiralize your zucchini and chop all your veggies and protein.
  2. Place your veggies and protein (except for the asparagus and leeks) into a giant bowl. Add your protein to the bowl.
  3. spray your cast iron stove top grill with coconut oil, add asparagus to the pan, spray a bit more coconut oil and top with salt and pepper. Add a slight bit of water to the grill for extra help steaming and cover with the lid of a pot (your lid doesn't fit the grill skillet perfectly, it just needs to trap some of the steam in. Alternately you can pan saute these with the leeks if you are sans grill.)
  4. Cook asparagus for 5 minutes, flip them, and cook for five more.
  5. Spray a non stick skillet with coconut oil and add your leeks to the pan. Cover the pan and heat your leeks until they are just a bit soft and have crispy brown edges. (approximately 7 minutes)
  6. While your veggies are cooking, put the dressing ingredients (ginger through tamari) in a high speed blender. Whiz until completely smooth.
  7. Once veggies are cooked to your liking, add them to the bowl with the raw vegetable ingredients.
  8. Toss with dressing, using enough to cover the salad. I used about ½ of the batch that I made.
  9. Enjoy!
