|Warm Kale and Beet Salad|
I'm feeling very virtuous today. After my morning workout, I tried to think of the healthiest possible lunch with the ingredients on hand. With a pot of cooked beets waiting to be peeled on the stove and a slightly wilted bunch of kale in the fridge, I decided to combine the two into a delicious warm salad.
Warm Kale and Beet Salad
1/2 bunch of kale (approximately 6-8 cups chopped)
2 cooked beets
4 teaspoons seasoned rice vinegar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon agave nectar (or sweetener of your choice)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
toasted sesame seeds
Remove the tough stems from the kale and chop into fairly thin strips. Steam the kale lightly for approximately 2 minutes. Slice the cooked beets and then cut into matchsticks. In a small bowl, combine the rice vinegar, soy sauce, agave nectar and sesame oil. Toss the kale and beets with the dressing and garnish with sesame seeds.
