Simple Kale Bowl

This recipe is one of my favorites.  It calls for dulse (my favorite is from Eden Foods) and kale chips but the dulse can be omitted if it is not handy and steamed kale can be substituted for the chips.  If dulse is new to you, it is a sea vegetable that is a great source of protein, iodine and potassium.  It is also delicious and I love it on top of soup, added to salads and even plain (read more about the health benefits at Natural News)!

Simple Kale Bowl

Serves One

Ingredients:

1/4 avocado, cut into slices

1 cucumber, cut into slices

1/2 c kale chips (packaged is fine, if you don’t have any handy, steamed kale works too)

1/2 c dulse (optional)

1/2 c quinoa (cooked)

1/2 c brown rice (cooked)

Simple dressing (1 t ginger, 1 t sesame oil, 1/2 T apple cider vinegar, 1/2 T soy sauce)

Instructions:

1. Cook the quinoa and brown rice according to package directions and combine.  Place at the bottom of the bowl.

2.  Next, place the cucumbers, dulse and kale on top of the rice and top with the avocado.

3. Drizzle the dressing over the mixture and enjoy!

    I have never, ever heard of dulse! Definitely going to see if its available here. I need more protein than what I’m currently getting since I don’t eat much meat anymore. Thank you!

      I really like it – I do eat it plain too, and I like it like that, but I think it might be best to try it as a part of something else – like this recipe or on a miso soup? Let me know what you think!

    Now this is my kind of meal! I love all sea vegetables, but dulse is usually outside of my standard budget, so I gravitate towards wakame and hijiki more often than not. I love just tossing it in soups and salads- Nothing terribly exciting, but always so satisfying.
