Ax Salad Lite
This is my preferred variant of my Ax Salad recipe, with the addition of molasses to provide iron, calcium, magnesium and flavor to replace a ton of spinach and broccoli. Obviously, that means more sugar and less protein, but it's still healthy and it's a lot more fun to eat! ;)
Ax Salad is my attempt to make a nutritionally complete meal using only whole foods, with as few ingredients as possible. It tastes good and is pretty quick and easy to make. Not only that, but it's also pescetarian, and free of nuts, beans, dairy, and gluten. Yes, I'm allergic to a lot of things. :p
Try it! :D
|1 1/2 cups||Oats (rolled)||Makes three servings of oatmeal|
|4 eggs||Eggs (poached)||Four large eggs, organic or pasture-raised|
|8 oz||Broccoli (frozen)||Half a package of frozen broccoli from Trader Joe's|
|8 oz||Spinach (frozen)||Half a package of frozen spinach from Trader Joe's|
|6 oz||Spinach (raw)||One package of organic baby spinach from Trader Joe's|
|12 pieces||Herring (pickled)||Make sure these are filets, not steaks|

This will take about 30 minutes to make. Do it in the morning!
Start boiling 4 cups of water in a large pot on the stove, on high heat.
Pour the olive oil into a bottle.
Optionally, pour a little vinegar in the bottle too.
Pour the molasses into the bottle.
Seal and shake the bottle.
Once the water starts boiling, add the frozen broccoli.
Once the water starts boiling again, add the frozen spinach.
Once the water starts boiling again, add the rolled oats and stir them in.
Once the water starts boiling again, reduce heat to medium.
Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring at least every couple minutes.
Crack the eggs into the porridge and reduce heat to low.
Cook for 1-5 more minutes, stirring continuously.
Add in any spices or flavorings you want.
Makes 3 servings.
Dish up ⅓ of the porridge into a bowl.
Place 4 pieces of pickled herring on the bowl of porridge.
Add any other toppings you want. Pickles and sauerkraut are good.
Rinse and dry the raw spinach. Or not.
Tear the spinach into smaller pieces. Or not.
Makes 3 servings.
Place ⅓ of the spinach into another bowl.
Add in any other salad toppings you want. Berries are good.
Drizzle ⅓ of the dressing over the bowl of spinach.
Sprinkle ⅓ of the nutritional yeast over the bowl of spinach.
Sprinkle on any other spices you want. Cinnamon and cayenne pepper are good.
Eat the porridge and salad together. If you have a huge bowl, you can even mix them up together!
Save the other 2 servings for lunch and dinner. Yum! :)
