Curry Pineapple Salad with Parsnip Rice

One of my daughters and my favorite dinners when they were growing up was a brown rice curry dish with pineapple. I wanted to make this recipe 100% raw. Using parsnips for the rice and adding quite a few more veggies than the original had, I came up with a great raw food recipe for this pineapple salad. It is satisfying enough for lunch or dinner! I added in some mâche, one of my favorite spring greens and made a mâche dressing that was placed to the side of the dish.



Mâche also called Lamb’s Lettuce, is a wonderful spring green. Grown since the 17th century in France, mâche is starting to take it’s place amongst the beautiful array of lettuce now available to us. It actually has more iron than spinach, with sweet nutty flavor.

    Mmmmm!! Like Jane, I used a butternut, because that was what I had. I also used spinach, for the same reason. I don’t believe I have ever seen mache, but I will look for it. Whether or not I find it, I will most certainly make this again, even if it is without the greens and the dressing. It is delicious!

    I had a pineapple to use, so I decided to make this for dinner. I had all of the ingredients except parsnips so I substituted butternut squash for the rice. I heated everything up in my dehydrator. It was delicious. Thank you so much for you recipes Susan!

    What is the product name of the mache you use?

    I’m making this tomorrow night for dinner, except I’ll be substituting the mache for a baby spinach & rocket as there is no mache to be found in Perth Australia 😛

    We had it for supper yesterday, and it’s really delicious. My 13 years old daughter even chose to have it in her lunchbox today, instead of a cheese sandwich !

    Plus, we had the” blueberry peach chia pudding” for dessert. A great hit in the family !

    A complete “Rawmazing” supper, so delicious, nobody complained (or even noticed) eating raw …

    Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration.

    Another gorgeous presentation! You are a master! I love the little details such as the tiny bundle of Mache tied with twine. Also the drizzle of mache sauce around the salad. Wow!
