Brighten up a drab winter day with this delicious, low-fat superfood salad. Kale is both low in calories and incredibly nutrient-dense. It’s loaded with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health properties and can also help aid digestion. Rich in vitamin C, beets provide an immune-system boost and can also help lower blood pressure.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 4 cups raw beets
  • 4 cups Kale
  • 7 oz Firm Tofu
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS

1 Slice the peeled beets into quarters.
2 Wash the kale and remove the stems.
3 Place the beets into a pot with ½ inch of water in it. Bring to a boil.
4 Put the lid on the pot and turn the heat down to medium, simmering for ten minutes or until the beets are soft.
5 Chop the kale and water fry in a pan with a small amount of water over high heat until wilted.
6 In a blender, combine the tofu, oil, salt, syrup, vinegar and garlic. Blend until smooth.
