I make this meal when I feel like I have had enough fish as my source of protein. Here’s a vegan high protein alternative.
Hummus (see my recipe in another post)
150 gms Oyster mushrooms
1 cup organic quinoa
2 large tomatoes
1 large leek
4 cloves garlic
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea salt (celtic is best!)
A little feta cheese to crumble
Lettuce (as base)
Wash and arrange the lettuce on a plate. In your rice cooker, throw in your quinoa. When quinoa is halfway cooked, add garlic, cut up leeks, salt, and chopped tomatoes. While it is cooking, cut and stir fry mushrooms in olive oil and salt. When finished, place mushrooms and quinoa on bed of lettuce.
Grind up ingredients to make hummus. For this particular Mediterranean plate, I like to add a dash of curry powder. Crumble feta cheese on top.
