Jonah’s Massaged Kale (with secret sauce)

  • 1 bunch kale, finely shredded
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • quarter cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon miso
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup or other sweetener
  • sea salt (enough to very lightly coat kale)
  • black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
  • toasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds


De-stem kale.

Mix salt and shredded kale in mixing bowl.  Massage kale vigorously to created marinated/wilted effect on kale. Set aside.  This makes it much tastier and easier to digest, giving it a “cooked” texture.

In blender, add shredded carrot, finely chopped garlic, olive oil, sesame oil, black pepper to taste, and miso.  Blend until smooth.  Add more olive oil or a touch of water so blends easily.  Pour over and mix into kale.

In a hot un-oiled cast iron skillet lightly toast sunflower and pumpkin seeds.  Until lightly brown.  Do not over toast!  Add as topping to kale.
