Meatless Monday: Superfood Kale Salad
I should be writing a really great Meatless Monday post right now but I’m about to jump on a plane. I’m finally going home!! I’ve had a lovely time in Bangkok working on this cookbook, but it’s time for me to rejoin a culture I’m more used to, be near my friends and family and such.
Recently I started blogging for Happy Cow. I hope you will subscribe over there because I’ll be posting some really great new, fresh content. But since I haven’t cooked a thing this week I will share with you a new take on one of my best kale salads with added superfoods of beans, arame, and hemp seeds. Check out these other great superfoods you can find right at your local grocery store and give this salad a try!
Superfood Kale Salad with Sweet Mustard Dressing
1 bunch kale, washed
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 cup cooked white beans (from a can is fine)
Handful arame, soaked 5 minutes, then drained
Hemp seeds, as garnish
Sweet Miso Dressing:
1 small lemon, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon yellow or white miso
1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
1 tablespoon maple or brown rice syrup
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
Black pepper, to taste
Sea salt, to taste
Filtered water, as necessary
Pull leaves from stalk of kale and tear into small pieces. Thinly slice the stalk. Place in a medium bowl. Blend dressing ingredients in blender or whisk by hand until smooth. Massage the kale with dressing for a couple of minutes. Stir in the rest of salad ingredients and allow to sit for 15 minutes while the flavors meld. Serve garnished with hemp seeds.
