Veggie Zasta w/ Hemp Seeds

Hello my dear pasta lovers, this one’s for YOU!  ….ok, so it might not be exactly “pasta”, but it’s delicious non-the-less, very low in calories, high in nutrient content, and tastes a hell of a lot better than any other gluten free pasta alternative out there (or at least I think so).  Everyone who’s tried this dish, LOVES it… and the best part?  No bloat, no sleepy feeling later!  In fact, quite the opposite.

Light & Refreshing Cucumber Yogurt Salad

I’ve adapted this recipe from one of my favorite Ukrainian salads that mom used to make.  The original was 3 ingredients: cucumbers, sour cream and salt.  Mine is a Mediterranean twist, perfect for a hot summer day or a light dinner salad or side dish any time of year.

Ingredients:
Cucumber – preferably seedless
Yogurt – goat is better for digestion & assimilation
Lemon juice
Salt
Scallion – optional, adds a delicious dimension

Directions:
Super simple, super quick.  Peel cucumber, slice.  Sprinkle with salt.  Add a desirable amount of yogurt and squeeze in lemon juice to taste.  Mix up & enjoy!
