Isn't it pretty?

Sorry it's been a while. I have been planning this big post to commemorate my 2 year anniversary of a 100% raw diet, but that was 3 weeks ago and it hasn't quite come to fruition yet...
So instead I give you a big fat bowl of tabbouleh. I found this meal to be fascinating to me, both in taste and texture; fascinating is good, by the way. ;-) It is not something I have ever eaten before (though I've made it for others a million times), in fact I don't know if I ever even ate non-raw tabbouleh. I do think it is a very easy dish to convert into raw though, if you like it cooked i imagine you would like it raw.
The reason I have never made it for myself is that I am not 100% comfortable using oils of any kind. This is not because of the fat content, it is simply because extracting oil from anything, be it an olive or a hemp seed, will alter the constitution of the oil and is a form of processing that I'm not entirely happy with. BUT I was really hankering for a big bowl of tabbouleh and, as you probably know if you read this blog much, when my body is asking for something I give it what it wants. I must admit, I have had some emotional/psychological stressors in my life recently and I know I haven't been taking 100 proper care of myself, so I wondered if I was a bit low in iron and that's why my body wanted all that iron-rich parsley.
Whatever the reason, I'm glad I made it because it was really very tasty. The dressing used 1/4 cup of organic, cold-pressed sunflower oil and I felt absolutely no ill effects from that, so I intend to be making it again!
Because I'm so nice, I want you to be able to enjoy this recipe as much as I did, so here it is:

Salad ingredients:
4 bunches parsley
about 300grams cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup almonds

Dressing ingredients:
1/4 cup cold-pressed oil (olive, sunflower, I'm thinking hemp would be great...)
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 small clove garlic (optional)

Finely chop the parsley in a food processor. Halve or quarter (if big) the cherry tomatoes. Chop the almonds in a food processor briefly until just crushed (not powdered!). Blend dressing ingredients in a blender then put everything in a big bowl and toss until well combined. Serve and enjoy.

Hope life is going wonderfully for everyone. I will try to get back with that anniversary post soon!

Hi Freedom, good to see you posting and congrats on your 2 year anniversary!

I was feeling really emotionally all over the place earlier this year, and taking B12 supplements have really stabalised me. I don't like taking supplements but I had a blood test and was really low (in iron too). So if you've been feeling off that could be an avenue to check out.

Hope to catch up with you soon :) Kate

Oh that looks good. I've wanted to try Any Phyo's raw tabbouleh with hemp seeds for a long time now!

I hope you're doing well!

Hi Chicky Babe, I've just been googling raw books and stumbled across your fantastic blog, and the link to
I just registered for a blog so I could write to you, there's nothing on my home page right now!

I went vegan a couple of years ago (though I still have some non-food animal products in my life) and am interested in animal rights too.

I have a wish list of three books I want to buy - Raw by Charlie Trotter and Roxanne Klein, Raw by Juliano and Raw Living by Kate Wood.

I see you have Juliano's Raw - I can only find it for sale at $68, do you think I can find a cheaper version?

My flatmate's fella has lent us girls a copy of Charlie Trotter's Raw and although the recipes are a bit gourmet and I would probably only make a couple of them, I like to read it while I eat - it seems to enhance my eating experience!

Love to hear your opinion :)

Hi there!

I just came across your blog and just wanted to say your pictures look really nice! I have trouble taking decent looking photos of my recipes and the link you gave is very helpful so thanks!

I've been raw for almost two years now and I know what your saying about the oil - I stay away from anything extracted and fooled around with, whole foods are always best but I do miss me some good olive oil :)

Hope you feel better,
