You've asked, we listened! Many of you have asked for recipes that incorporate the super green, Kale. Packed full of vitamins A, K, B6 and C, calcium, potassium, copper and manganese and with antioxidants. According to Medline*, Kale the most nurtrient-dense foods in existence. Eating more kale is a great way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of your diet. I try and find ways of incorporating kale into my diet more often and not just adding to my protein shakes. I came across a cold summer salad and thought adding kale to it would be amazing - and it is. This is my absolute FAVORITE salad to make. A crowd pleaser at its best! Delicious and healthy - you can't go wrong with this one.
1 bunch kale, chopped (I used dinosaur kale but any kale will work)
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 15.5oz can garbanzo beans, drained
1 cup chopped cucumbers
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
1 cup cubed vegan feta (I use Violife)
Apple Cider Vinegar (to taste)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Add Kale, cooked quinoa, garbanzo beans, cucumbers, red onion, cilantro to a bowl; toss to combine. Add cubed feta and combine. Drizzle with EVOO, Apple Cider vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
