Vegan Kale Salad With Quinoa Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

For the Quinoa:

1 cup Quinoa (170g) Dry Weight

2 cups Water (480ml)

For the Kale:

5 cups Kale (5 ounces / 141g) Stems removed (packed cups)

1 Tbsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1/8 tsp Salt

For the Salad:

10 Cherry Tomatoes sliced in half

10 Sundried Tomatoes sliced

10 Pitted Olives sliced in half

15 Walnuts chopped

For the Dressing:

1 Recipe Tahini Salad Dressing

For Serving:

1-2 Medium Avocados Sliced

Cilantro

Instructions

1Place the quinoa and water into a pot and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed (~15 mins). Once cooked, fluff with a fork.

2While the quinoa is cooking, add your kale (stems removed) to a big bowl. Add in the olive oil, lemon juice and salt and massage with your hands for around a minute. You will feel the kale fibers soften and break down, creating a nice soft edible kale.

3Prepare the other salad ingredients, except the avocado and then toss together in a bowl with the kale and toss together.

4When the quinoa is cooked add it to the bowl and toss together.

5Prepare the tahini salad dressing by adding all ingredients to a bowl and whisking together.

6Serve in a salad bowl or salad platter topped with sliced avocado and fresh cilantro and topped with tahini dressing.
