Marinated Kale

hands crunching kale...very therapeutic

I LOVE this recipe…it’s my favorite way to eat greens, especially right now when it’s the ONLY thing coming from the garden….red russian kale, swiss chard, spinach especially!

1 bunch kale -washed, cut or ripped into small 1-2 inch pieces

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 1/2 tbsp tamari

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp minced ginger

1-3 tbsp. sesame seeds (optional)

  1. Place prepped kale into a large bowl.
  2. In a separate small to medium bowl, whisk together sesame oil and tamari till emulsified/combined nicely. Whisk in garlic and ginger.
  3. Pour sauce over kale and massage sauce into the kale…using your hands!  This will help ensure all pieces of kale are covered.
  4. Add sesame seeds to the kale (if you’re not sure if you’d rather go 1 or 3 tbsp, I suggest adding 1 and mixing up and checking coverage. You can always add more sesame seeds but you can’t take them back out…not easily at least).
  5. Cover and let marinate in fridge for at least 24 hours.
  6. Right before I eat it I like to sprinkle some dried cherries or cranberries over it…. Enjoy! 🙂
