5 min superfood salad

Written by MjauMay 9, 2017

As we approach the end of spring here in south of europe I feel my whole being craving light foods and festive (non alcoholic of course) cocktails! This salad is one of my go to staples and can be variated in so many ways. If you feel the need for more protein (even though the quinoa got some) add some tempeh, nut cheese or lentils.

 

Kajsa’s quick super-salad:

Serves 1, cooking time 30 min (with cooking the quinoa or 5 min if you got a stash of precooked)

  • 3 stems of kale (stems removed and torn into pieces) *
  • 10 strawberries (sliced in half)
  • 1/2 cup (1,5 dl) cooked quinoa
  • 1 avocado (peeled, pitted and cubed)
  • Sprouts (I used leek sprouts)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Nutritional yeast

 It’s really this fast and easy:

  • Cook the quinoa if you have not done that already. I like to add some garlic and herbs to the pot to add flavour.
  • Place your prepared kale into a big bowl.
  • Make the dressing by squeezing the lemon juice into a glass. Remove any seeds and add olive oil and salt. Whisk together with a fork.
  • Pour dressing over kale and massage for 1,2 min. This makes it easier to digest the kale. Leave for 5 min.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, mix well and serve with some nutritional-yeast on top!

* If you are having issues with your thyorid, choose mixed salad instead of kale as it will work better with your condition.
