Mylos Welcome Meal!

So today was a very exciting day due the wonderful arrival of Mylo. It doesn't take much for the Caulwells to find an excuse for a tasty get together and mum had here eye on a recipe from 'What Katie Ate' for a wihle so I decided to give it a go. Now I think everyone should give it a go! Click here for the very easy recipe.

The recipe says to serve it with rice but we had it with a very tasty salad inspired by a visit to The Happy Pear in Greystones yesterday. I recently got their recipe book as a gift from some wonderful friends and this is the second time making it. Its a healthy, colourful, inviting looking dish that goes down a treat and leaves you feeling full but not slugish! (I like to make extra dressing for an extra kick or to keep in the fridge).

Mix the following ingredients in a bowl
30g toasted sunflower seeds
30g toasted sesame seeds  (both seeds can be dry fried together)
1 carrot (grated)
1/2 red cabbage (finely sliced)
1 red pepper (finely sliced)
1 yellow pepper (finely sliced)
a handful of sugar snaps (finely sliced)
packet of beansprouts
a head of pak choi or 100g baby spinach (shredded)
150g sprouted beans

and then dress with the following ingredients whizzed up in a food processor
2cm cube of ginger
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 red chilli
5 tablespoons soy sauce
juice of a lemon
2 tablespoons honey
50 ml olive oil
50ml sunflower oil
