Hearty, delicious kale salad with roasted sweet potatoes and marinated tofu. Very easy to make, satisfying and absolutely delicious. Healthy, filling lunch or dinner. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
I can always tell nice weather is around the corner because I start to enjoy salads again. During the colder months, I want to eat salads just about as much as I want to stick my head in the snow (spoiler….not at all)
Salads don’t have to suck. The easiest way to make them suck less, is to top them with roasted, savory goodies. My favorite is marinated tofu and roasted sweet potatoes. And, what do you know!? That’s exactly what’s in today’s recipe!
I had a big bowl of this salad for lunch and it kept me full all the way to dinner. By the time dinner came, I was still pretty satisfied, so I ended up eating a smaller meal.
This salad is deceiving because it looks like healthy, hippie ‘rabbit food’, but it fills you up and keeps you satisfied like……food? Don’t know where I was going with that one. Let me try again. This salad is f*cking delicious and super satisfying. There we go, that’s better.
The base of this is massaged kale, baby spinach and red cabbage. Don’t let that scare you. With the tahini dressing and roasted toppings, that green goes down without a fight.
Yes, we want to massage the kale with half of an avocado first and a splash of lemon juice. Not only is this super fun for us tactile learners, it also makes the kale more tasty and digestible.
After taking the kale to the massage parlor, we just mix it up with some baby spinach and shredded purple cabbage. I absolutely love the look of deep green with bright purple. This salad is such a beautiful delight, for both your eyes and your taste buds.
If you’ve been wanting to find a tasty way to get your greens in, this recipe is for you! It makes eating healthy an afterthought because you will be focusing on how good this tastes!
It’s so important to get your greens in, especially if you’re vegan. Greens are chock-full of minerals and vitamins and (my favorite) they make your skin GLOW!
So be like Popeye and EAT YOUR GREENS!
