Kale, the New and Old Superfood
The benefits of eating kale is all over the internet.
Kale is a brassica, which means it’s of the cabbage family. It is loaded with awesome buzzword goodness. It is packed full of fiber, iron, vitamins A, C and of course, K. It has calcium for your bones , antioxidants and best of all is low in fat.
With all of that power packed goodness no wonder a Samurai, like our hero in the following story, Kowareta and Nana would favor it. Take a moment to read it.
With a few simple ingredients you could be on your way to enjoying a light nutritious side dish like the recipe mentioned in the story above.
Here is our version of an Asian kale salad and add a mouthful of healthy flavor to your next meal.
- 1 large bunch kale
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup almonds raw, slivered
- 1 TBS olive oil extra virgin
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese fresh grated
- 1/4 cup sesame ginger dressing
- 1 cup cranberries dried
Remove the stems from the kale leaves. Cut the kale into small pieces and set aside.
In a large bowl add pressed or chopped garlic, salt and parmesan cheese and mix together.
In a small skillet, on medium heat, combine the olive oil and almonds and sauté until lightly browned.
Add the almonds and the dressing to the garlic mixture and mix well.
Place the kale in with the garlic mixture and toss until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Place on plates and garnish with a few dried cranberries if desired. ENJOY!
