Sesame Kale with Hempseed Oil

Standard

vegan kale

As you know, I am not the best person to ask for recipes. I really do find it easy to just throw everything together. Plus, we use up bits and pieces, and most fruit and veggies are never going to be the same size. The night before I made up some veggies and cashews with rice. Oh, and we actually added in some “chicken-type” nuggets as well. Even a photo can sometimes be a bit of inspiration though.

How do you eat kale?

I seem to think that kale is mostly eaten as kale chips as well as in green smoothies or salads. When we were in California, I would eat kale as a gluten-free option under tempeh or as a side at The Veggie Grill.

Often people seem to either really like or dislike kale. I have to admit, I was a bit uncertain when I had tried it a few years ago. Everyone seemed to love it, and I suppose I was a bit mixed and still making my mind up. This was before I really knew much about kale chips and enjoyed it at The Veggie Grill, but I never seemed to make it at home. Now all that has changed. I suppose you tend to like it more and more as you try it in various ways.

This was a super simple meal. I only had a few veggies and cashews from the night before, and I loved the sesame kale I had made for the chickpea burgers so I decided to combine the two. I tossed the kale with a bit of raw hempseed oil and sesame seeds. Super simple, and another great way to get some greens. Not my typical way to eat kale, but it was yummy. I could definitely eat this again and even change up the veggies or nuts and seeds.

Kale really is super versatile 🙂

Yes, that is vegan “cheese”. Not something we often have, but we thought we might make some gluten-free vegan pizzas. We are currently sprouting chickpeas for raw hummus, and we were back to experimenting with our juicer yesterday using pineapple, celery, kale, and juicing beets. I wasn’t really sure what Zaedyn would think of it, but of course he loved it!

Juicing or Smoothies?

    • I am surprised you cannot find kale there. Hopefully you will come across it, or maybe you can try growing your own. It is super hard to find here so I actually ended up just growing my own this year. I might try to see if I can keep it up year round. There are quite a few varieties, but unfortunately I cannot really compare it to silverbeet as I have only used silverbeet in my smoothies. I may have had it at some point, but I didn’t grow up eating it so I think it is about time I ate some to find out :).

      • As I live in a sub tropically climate I am not sure if it would grow here. Your climate is suited to great veggies 🙂 Which is pretty cool. Love to hear you are growing your own. In pots I grow capsicums, chillies, eggplant 🙂 Silverbeet is good in pasta with a tomato base sauce. Its very good 🙂 Enjoy your night PS My name is Thomas I like your name maori for deep affection ? Is this right or love ? Thanks
