Color Me Happy: A Rainbow In My Bowl


 Lately i've been using my food processor like a mad-woman and working in somewhat zombie mode when i'm hungry:

Enter Kitchen.  Grab veggies from fridge, Slide Food Processor into arms distance, insert shredding disc, push veggies through.

Within minutes i'll have grated a huge shredded veggie salad with little effort, and within 5 minutes from the start to finish i'm enjoying a delicious and nutrient rich lunch.

So today was no different.  I'm in a pinch for time...need to leave for work but i want to bring something healthy for lunch, and i have less than 10 minutes before i have to be out the door and i don't want to leave a huge kitchen mess for Boyfriend to walk in on.  Revisit zombie mode:

Grab veggies from fridge, Slide Food Processor into arms distance, insert shredding disc, push veggies through. 

Being pinched for time I dressed it with only lemon, flax oil, and nutrition yeast not thinking it would be so stellar,  but to my wonder - it was!  Plus i was able to rinse my food processor out, compost my scraps, rinse my cutting board, and leave the kitchen clean before i jammed out the door.

Super Duper!!!

So if you like the taste of nutrition yeast like i do, then this one's a real hit.  Easy, requires little prep, and super savvy for you clean eatin' fools!  Add your favorite legumes and color yourself happy too.

Rainbow Bowl:

shred any veggies you have with a shredder/grater attachment in a food processor, my dish included:

2 small radishes
2 small gold beets
1 zuchini
1 large carrot
approx 1/4 - 1/2 cup cauliflower
1/4 cup shredded cabbage (cut by hand instead of with food processor)

into this squeeze a fresh lemon, a drizzle of cold pressed flax oil, add 4-6 Tbsp of nutrition yeast, and 1/2 cup garbanzo beans.

NUM!!!!
