Has anyone every refused to eat something you prepared because it was "rabbit food"? If so, I hope it made you smile and think "more for me", because those silly wabbits have some seriously healthy diets. Here is one of the best ever Vegan recipee's I have ever had the privledge of tasting, outside of the "raw desert" category. I was introduced to this recipee in the garden of Bastyr University before the new dormatories went in right over the place where I first spoke with a madrona tree. We had to purchase avocadoes, lemons and onions, but the Kale came right out of the garden. I bought the Kale from the store this time, as even our cold weather crops are huddled under dry leaves right now. This is a simple base recipe to add to as you like with liquid aminos, sea salt, spices, olives or pickles, any variety of nuts, unless you are actually making it for a rabbit.
Dice two bunches of Kale super thin. This takes awhile, so sing "tiny dicer" to the tune of "Tiny Dancer".
Squeeze all the innards of one or two lemons all over the diced Kale and double check that you and everyone helping has washed their hands because you have to actually get into this recipe.
Squish and Mush and Mash the lemon juice all over the diced up Kale. Let the children do it. It's green and it's fresh, and it's good clean fun.
Add diced onion, and don't cry about it. See; if you read the entire recipe before you started, you wouldn't have to wash your hands again.
Squish and Mush and Mash the avocado into the Kale so that it is a creamy sticky flavorfull mess. Note: Some Rabbits are sensitive to Avocado and other vegetables. Know your rabbit and do not feed any new food without researching it for yourself. Some research shows avocados are toxic to rabbits, while some people's rabbits were raised eating them and are just fine. I say stick to green leafies for bunnies.
Licking the green mess off each other's fingers is way more fun than washing it off into the compost or worm bin, and totally okay as long as you wash your hands before you touch the bowl again, or the counter. Rinsing it off into the worm bin is more fun if you have children to teach about composting and the circle of life.
That's it other than any finishing touches you want to add. Keep a stock of raw nuts, seeds, and fruits, and let everyone pick like a buffet.
Rabbits like buffets. Visit this site for a list of things rabbits can and can't eat; and the next time someone calls your salad rabbit food, point out all the things in your salad that are toxic to Rabbits. http://allaboutbunnies.homestead.com/Things-bunnies-can-and-can-t-eat.html
