Kicked Up Kale

Have you had Kale before? If not, it is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Try it today.

Serves 4 – Advanced and Core Plan

Kale is one of the healthiest foods on the planet and it is also very versitile.  This is yet another way to prepare kale that has so much texture and flavor. It is portable, goes with anything, and is a great introduction for people who haven't tried kale before.

  • 1/2 bunch raw kale (washed, de-stemmed and patted dried)
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon liquid aminos or tamari
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (1 -2 cloves of garlic)

Break kale into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.

Puree all ingredients except kale in a blender or food processor.

Pour dressing over kale and massage into the kale with your hands, really working the dressing into the kale.

Refrigerate for an hour or more for best results.  The kale will wilt a bit and the flavors will penetrate the kale better. (Unfortunately, I usually can’t wait that long and eat it right away)...

Another favorite of mine is Kale Chips! Feel free to email me at drnickbarnes@gmail.com if you would like the recipe.
