Kale Recipe!

Remember when you were a kid and you hated lima beans? What happened to you? You tried those Doc Martins and now you are obsessed. Please don't smooch your face up at kale. You will love it if only you'd try it! 

We have kale at the stand right now. I am in love with kale. I eat it almost every day in the winter months in the form of kale salad. But you can also make kale chips in the oven, chop it up and add it to pasta, soup, casseroles and lasagnas. Sky's the limit with this super healthy super healthy super healthy (!) vege.

I don't really follow a recipe any longer- feel free to adjust quantities. Throw all the dressing ingredients in a mason jar with the lid and shake it like crazy. 

Kale Salad

1 big bunch of kale
3 scallions chopped (or 1 large SIW scallion)
1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped (or a few shakes of cayenne mixed into the dressing)
1 red pepper, chopped
2 carrots, shredded 
1/4 c sesame seeds
any other veggies you want (like corn! avocado! cold roasted potatoes!)


1/4 c Olive Oil
juice of 1 lg lemon
2 T soy sauce or liquid aminos
3 T apple cider vinegar
1 T agave or honey
2-4 cloves garlic, minced 
a dash of cayenne pepper or dried pepper flakes
salt & pepper 

Chop up all the salad ingredients, mix the dressing really well, soak the salad in dressing and if you're feeling feisty, massage the dressing into the kale by squeezing it with your hands. No seriously, do this step. The kale will taste better. And it's pretty fun. Tastes better the longer you leave it. Let it marinate at over night. Awesome the next day and the next if you've got it any left over!
