Detoxifying Tabouleh With Pistachio Recipe

Spring has nearly sprung! So to celebrate, we’re sharing this amazing homemade tabouleh with pistachio recipe from The Detox Bible. Created by Lily Simspon and Rob Hanson, the Arab dish is traditionally made with bulgar wheat, however the duo have replaced it with buckwheat to make a healthier, wheat-free version.

“This dish is fresh and delicious, perfect on its own with some good gluten-free bread or served as a side with meat or fish,” said the authors. “It’s also a great party dish, served with hummus, wrapped in lettuce leaves.”

Ingredients

100g buckwheat grain

2 handfuls of fresh parsley

A handful of fresh mint

300g ripe vine tomatoes, seeded and very finely chopped

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

A pinch of black pepper

A handful of home-shelled pistachios, coarsely crushed

Method

  1. Put the buckwheat in a saucepan and cover with twice its volume of water. Bring to the boil, then cook for 5 minutes until soft. Drain in a sieve and rinse under cold water to cool, then leave to drain thoroughly.
  2. Pull the parsley and mint leaves from their stems and finely chop (keep a few mint leaves for garnish, if you like).
  3. Tip the buckwheat into a large mixing bowl and add the tomatoes, onion, parsley, mint, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Garnish with the pistachios and mint leaves, and serve.

Raw Cacao, Ginger And Avocado Mousse Recipe

To celebrate the release of The Detox Kitchen Bible, SHESAID has teamed up with authors Lily Simpson and Rob Hobson to bring you this amazing avocado mousse recipe. Yes, avocado in a sweet dish might seem a bit strange at first, however the duo insists that “it acts as a deliciously thick cream to bring the dark, bitter cacao and spicy ginger flavours together.”

What’s more, cacao is said to help boost your mood and has a similar effect on the brain as being in love does – and with only 315 calories per serve, need we say more!?

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 tbsp coconut oil

2 avocados

1 vanilla pod, split open lengthways

1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

3 tbsp coconut water

3 tbsp raw cacao powder

3 tbsp runny honey

Method

  1. Put the coconut oil in a small pan and heat gently for 5 minutes until melted. Remove from the heat.
  2. Whilst the coconut oil is melting, slice the avocados in half and remove the stones. Scrape all the flesh into a blender or food processor. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod and add to the blender.
  3. Add the grated ginger and coconut water and blitz until smooth. Now add the coconut oil along with the raw cacao powder and honey. Blitz for 2 minutes until completely smooth. (If you don’t have a blender you can mix everything together by hand although the texture may not be as smooth.)
  4. Spoon the mixture into four small ramekins or dessert glasses and leave to set in the fridge for 1–2 hours before serving.
