Awhile back, I posted about our trip to Cafe Gratitude and my obsession with their “I am Accepting” rice bowl. I never did try to make it at home…until today! I’ve been craving kale and salty things…so I meandered around the web for awhile to find a dressing that suited my fancy. And I must say, it turned out pretty close to the real thing! I just used what I had on hand…but this can be made with so many different ingredients.
I cooked up some brown rice and added some chopped raw kale while it was still a bit steamy. Then I added:
avocado (the creamy mild flavor cut the saltiness of the seaweed and miso nicely)
1/4 cup white miso
3 tablespoons rice vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup (it called for agave, but I’m not really using that anymore)
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons water
It was REALLY tasty. This made enough for a large bowl. I ate it all, but it could definitely be split to 2 servings or even 3 small side servings. You could also use this dressing for a regular salad.
