Raw Spiced Olive Artichoke Medley

Ingredients:


Preparation:

  1. Begin by making a marinade, whisking together the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper powder. Set aside.  
  2. Prepare the artichokes by removing and discarding all of the sharp outer leaves. Stop when you reach the pale inner leaves. Peel the stem with a vegetable peeler.  
  3. Slice the tender parts, including the stem, very finely into thin strips. Remove the fuzzy choke and any sharp inner leaves and discard. 
  4. Place the sliced artichoke in a large bowl and immediately drench in the lemon juice to prevent browning. 
  5. Toss with the onion, parsley and the prepared marinade. 
  6. Mix in the hemp seeds and olives. Top with additional hemp seeds and pepper to garnish when serving. Serve immediately and enjoy!
