Getting back to work this week has been tough after a long and relaxing weekend, I’m kind of glad the weekend is near. I finally got the Christmas tree up and decorated and the boxes put back away.
I didn’t finish it Sunday because after I finished getting all the lights on, a fuse blew in the bottom strand and hubby sweetly picked up more fuses and fixed it Monday. And it looks great, such a bright and warm addition to the TV room. I need to figure out a lighted tree solution I can put there year round.
Anyway, I have a new healthy winter comfort recipe! It blends kale and tahini into a super strong, creamy, and savory garlic sauce or dressing. It’s perfect for sauteing steamed veggies, tofu, tempeh, etc. Also perfect to coat a kale salad with more kale.
Creamy Kale Sauce
- 2 cups chopped/shredded kale
- 2-3 cloves garlic
- ¼ cup tahini
- 1 tbsp. miso paste
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- dash red pepper flakes (to taste)
- ½ cup water, as needed
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings.
You can blend it to desired thickness, I went a little looser to use in a heated potato saute.
It coated chopped potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, and more kale nicely.
And has a strong garlic kick, satisfyingly strong.
But also warming and hearty for a cold winter dinner.
Season your veggies with veggies with this healthy sauce!
