I have been following Kris Carr and her wellness revolution since 2008 and although the ‘crazy sexy kale’ is the ‘supreme king of the leafies’ as Kris says, I was not able to find it on the island until a friend showed up with a lovely bunch of kale and a grin on my doorstep yesterday! I instantaneously searched for kale recipes in Kris’ ‘Crazy Sexy Kitchen’, an incredible selection of 150 plant-empowered recipes and paused at the truly enticing Warm Kale and Quinoa Salad. Needless to say, that I cooked this for lunch and I must say that it is a delish recipe! Thank you Kris Carr and Chef Chad Sarno! I am delighted to share this recipe with you exactly as it appears in ‘Crazy Sexy Kitchen’… serves 4-5 Ingredients: 2 cups quinoa 3 cups water 2 cups chopped or shredded kale 3 tbsps pine nuts, raw or toasted, or slivered almonds 3 tbsps currants, raisins or dried cranberries 2 tbsps lemon juice 1 tbsp olive il sea salt to taste freshly ground black pepper to taste In a small pot on medium heat, add quinoa and water, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover and continue to cook for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with fork. Add the shredded kale on top of the quinoa and cover for a few minutes to allow the kale to steam. Add pine nuts, currants, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and serve warm or cold.
