Vegan Kale Salad With Quinoa

Vegan Kale Salad With Quinoa Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 30 mins


1 cup (170g) Quinoa (Dry)

2 cups (480ml) Water

5 cups (5oz/141g) Kale, Stems Removed (packed cups)

1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1/8 tsp Salt

10 Cherry Tomatoes (sliced in half)

10 Sundried Tomatoes (sliced)

10 Pitted Olives (sliced in half)

15 Walnuts (chopped)

1 Batch Tahini Salad Dressing

1–2 Avocados (Sliced)



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 dressing by adding all ingredients to a bowl and whisking together as per the linked recipe.

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