Curried Kale with Caramelized Shallots

Kale, is one of nature’s super foods. Enjoy it raw, sauteed, juiced or made into Kale chips. I like to use the heartier Dino Kale for this tangy yet subtlety sweet recipe that will give you a new found love for this healthy & nutritious super food!



  • 3 Shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 TBL Coconut Oil
  • 1 TBL Curry Powder
  • 1 TBL Agave Nectar
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bunch Kale (about 4 oz) stems removed and chopped into large pieces
  • 2 TBL Tamari, Braggs or Nama Shoyu
  • 2 TBL Water

Heat oil over medium heat, add shallots and sauté until dark brown and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Stir in curry powder, agave and lemon juice.  Add kale, soy sauce and water. Cover and steam for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until kale is still chewy but tender. Do not overcook. Serve over Quinoa or Brown Rice!

Raw Kale Salad with Miso Dressing


  • 1 or 2 heads kale, any variety (I like Curly Kale for this salad)
  • 1/4 cup dried Organic cranberries
  • 1/4 cup Pine nuts
  • Extra Virgin First Cold-Pressed Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Miso Dressing (see recipe below)

Strip kale of stems, tear into small pieces and soak in a bowl for a minute or two to get rid of any sand or dirt. Drain kale and using a salad spinner, spin the kale dry. Place kale in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil and a dash of sea salt. Massage kale with your hands for a few minutes until it softens. This helps the kale become easier to digest.

Add cranberries & pinenuts and toss with Miso Dressing.


  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 tbl dijon mustard
  • 1 tbl white sweet miso
  • 1/4 c. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 3 TBL Olive oil
  • Blend in a Magic Bullet or shake well to mix.
