Wanting to stay health but enjoy warm Winter food too? Here’s just that combination. Enjoy!
One giant bunch of kale or 1 1/2 small/medium bunches
3 medium shallots
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 sweet apple (like pink lady)
For the dressing:
Grape seed oil
3 tablespoons tahini
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon agave
1 tablespoon avocado oil (or other light oil)
Preheat over to 375 cut kale into large pieces, removing most of the stem toss in grape seed oil, sprinkle with sea salt, place on roasting sheets and set aside thinly slice shallots and start to caramelise in a well oiled frying pan on low/medium heat while the shallots are caramelising chop the apple into tiny bits and place in a large serving bowl with the pine nuts keep an eye on the shallots- stir every once in a bit but give them time to brown and sweeten- lower your heat if they’re cooking too fast or burning! combine the dressing ingredients in a small mixing bowl – add water to thin the mixture to a dressing consistency you’re pleased with when you think the shallots are almost done it’s time to get that kale in the oven! cook it until it’s warmed through but remove before it gets too crispy on the edges. chop into smaller pieces and mix with shallots, apple and pine nuts. dress individually, and enjoy!
