Hey everybody. It's Jason Andrew Wrobel; J-Wro from the J-Wro Show and
JasonWrobel.com, which is part of my amazing raw and vegan recipe here with
the Sun Warrior Tribe. Today, I'm going to be doing a raw beet and blood
orange salad with some fresh fall flavors and some really dynamic raw
You want something easy, refreshing, crisp, and delicious? You came to the
right place, my kitchen in Glendale, California. Let's begin by shredding,
ninja style, our beets for our salad, which you're going to need a food
processor. If you want to get old-school like it's 1968, you can use one of
those box graters. It takes forever. My God, the kitchen looks like a crime
scene when you're done. I'm not the biggest fan of cleanup, so if you guys
don't have a food processor, I would recommend getting one because it makes
your life whole lot easier, especially for recipes like this. Without any
further ado, let's shred the beets.
The point I want to make, when you're using your food processor, you want
to make sure you're using your coarse shredder attachment because it works
just like a regular box grater would. You're going to turn your food
processor on. If the mouth on your food processor is wide enough, you can
fit a whole half a beet in there. As you can see, we've got actually 2
large beets that have been peeled and halved. I think a whole big chunk
like this can fit through. Let's give it a try. Once all the carnage is
done, what you've got is a whole nice amount, looks to be about 4 to 5 cups
or so of perfectly, nice, shredded beet. What you can do now is gently
remove the beets from the bowl and add them to a large mixing bowl. We're
going to move on. If our hands weren't red and bludgeoned enough from
beets, we're going to be adding some fresh blood oranges. I've got 4 medium
blood oranges, and I've diced them to about inch by inch size. Let's them
to our beets.
Next up, we have probably my favorite nut of all-time. I can really speak
volumes enough about how much I love pistachios; how addicted I am to them.
I don't really use them often enough, which is the weird thing. It's like,
'Baby, I love you, but I don't know why I don't take you out on dates
more.' Seriously, I love pistachios. In this case, I have about 1/3 to 1/2 -
cup of shelled, raw pistachios. You guys could crush these if you want, but
I'm adding them whole. Next we're going to add about 1 1/2 tablespoon of raw
hemp seeds for extra protein and omega fatty acid.
For a great crunch and some adrenal and kidney support, about a tablespoon
of raw black sesame seeds. A teaspoon of fresh thyme is also going to add a
nice, beautiful flavor undertone to our recipe. A little bit of salt to
bring all the flavors together, couple pinches should do. A shake of ground
black pepper. One of the secret ingredients to this recipe is usually
cardamom or cinnamon. Since I don't have cardamom currently, I'm going to
add just probably about 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in the mix. A
little bit of balsamic vinegar, about 1 tablespoon to 2 tablespoons really,
again, brings out the sweetness; a little bit of sourness helps blend all
the flavors together. Then our last ingredient is ice-pressed extra, extra
*** olive oil from Rallis Olive Oil. This is a Greek olive oil, really
high in anti-oxidants, great topically for your skin. Honestly, the best
olive oil I've ever used. Again, you could add a teaspoon, a tablespoon,
however much oil you want, or if you're going oil-free, you could leave
this part out. Me, I do like my oil. They don't call me Glowbel for
nothing; you know what I'm saying? Look at these cheeks, baby.
It's time to mix it up. Look at how pretty that is. It's time to plate it
up and give it a taste. Wow. If I had to pick one adjective to describe
this salad: Zingy. If you guys dug my beet and blood orange raw salad, give
this video a Thumbs Up. Let me know, what's your favorite way to make
salads for the holidays? Is it a cranberry salad? Is it something super-
fresh? How do you guys eat healthy during the fall and winter seasons?
What's your plan for staying slim, fit, and healthy for the end of 2013?
I'd love to know. Leave me a comment below.
