Maybe I should reconsider the massage school thing, because I really love massaging kale. Just kidding I have a new announcement/plan coming soon and lots of news when I start getting back to real blogging, but for now I’ll leave you with this cool recipe. I’ve seen this on a lot of blogs but namely HEABS and Gena are my inspirations here.
I have made a whole bunch of variations on this, but this is the basic recipe. I’ll show variations below.
Massaged Kale Salad
Ingredients (serves 2-3, or 1 salad girl)
1 bunch of kale
3 tablespoons olive oil (I know; it’s a lot – you don’t need this much though)
juice from 1/2 lemon
splash of balsamic vinegar
chili powder, salt, pepper to taste
1 shredded carrot
Remove the kale from the stems and rip it into pieces. Pour on the oil and add the avocado and massage them all together.
Add the spices, vinegar, lemon juice, carrot, and mix some more. Serve!
Some variations – any kind of shredded veggie will do in place of carrot. I’m trying to cut down on my orange food consumption because I got the dreaded orange tint. Oh, well. Haven’t had kabocha in probably 2-3 weeks now, but I probably still eat enough carrots to still be orange. You definitely don’t have to use as much olive oil; I change it up depending on my mood. If I use more, I might not finish the whole salad in one sitting. More oil does make it really delicious though.
I had it one night with some pork and a whole hunk of sauerkraut.
I’m trying to eat more (organic, free-range) meat for various reasons, and this meal was a major success. Be back soon!
