Eat kale raw?! That’s not possible, is it? Well yes my friend, it is. And it’s gorgeous too. If you massage Kale with olive oil and a bit of salt it become soft and edible. Which is great because kale is so amazing for you, it helps if you can eat it without cooking out all the goodness out! I love making kale salads, and it’s a nice one to have at a buffet (even if you’re not ‘raw’!).
KALE AND BEETROOT SALAD
- 1 bag of curly kale, washed and hard stems removed
- 1 beetroot, peeled and grated
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 3 spring onions, finely sliced
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp tamari (wheat free soy sauce) or balsamic vinegar
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
- salt and pepper
Place the kale in a large bowl and pour over the oil. Massage the kale in your hands until it looses it toughness. This will take about 5-10 minutes. Once this is done, you can just toss everything else in and mix it about a bit. Season to taste. This will serve about 6 people. If you eat meat still but are wanting to up your raw intake, this is a great dish to serve along with what you would normally have.
