The only thing you need to know is that A. Peter agreed to try this. B. He had seconds. And C. he said I should make it again and soon. Boom. Best recipe ever.
1 bunch Black or Tuscan kale, de-veined and chopped into small pieces
1/3 of a lemon
1 tsp garlic paste
2 count olive oil
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 cup graded (powdery) Parmesan cheese
Roasted pumpkin seeds
At least an hour before you’re ready to eat, toss chopped kale, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and some salt and pepper. Make sure to work everything into the kale to tenderize it. Set aside for at least an hour.
Cook quinoa according to directions. Toss hot quinoa with the kale mixture. Add Parmesan cheese, some cranberries and seeds. Mix and taste for more lemon (it’s easy to add too much at the start!). Serve room temperature or chill.
Kale is super sturdy so this salad keeps really well over night!
If you are a fan of True Food Kitchen’s kale salad, you’re going to love this. It’s really similar and you could add in bread crumbs instead of the quinoa for the TFK version. Just go easy with the lemon.
