Kale & Quinoa Salad with Garlic Tahini Dressing

Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


Tear kale into bite-sized pieces, or shred into ribbons. Place in large mixing bowl and set aside. Place all dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Drizzle 2-3 tbsp of the dressing over kale and massage to soften it. Transfer the kale to a serving bowl and add all other ingredients. Refrigerate to allow kale to continue to soften. Drizzle with more of the dressing before serving.

Here's An Awesome Recipe To Go With Next Week's Wanigans - Asparagus Pesto!

With Spring produce still plentiful, we're featuring Asparagus in our recipe of the week! Most of the time you will find asparagus on its own or as a side dish but we love it in this easy pesto recipe too!

Unlike classic pesto recipes that feature basil, pine nuts, lemon, olive oil and parmesan, this recipe is a bit more exotic with a medley of strong Spring flavours. Asparagus, parsley, green onion, tahini, nutritional yeast, cashews, kale, lemon, olive oil, garlic and salt combine for a flavour overload in this delicious pesto. Use it wherever you enjoy pesto -- from salad to pasta. This recipe is also vegan and gluten free making it suitable for most diets.

Spring Asparagus Pesto

  • 1 bunch of roasted or steamed asparagus, about 8-10 spears
  • ½ bunch of parsley, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • ½ cup cashews
  • 2 leaves of kale, chopped
  • 2 tsp tahini
  • Juice of one lemon
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (before blending)
  • ½ cup or more of olive oil for blending
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Steam or roast asparagus and save a few spear tops for garnish. Add asparagus and all other ingredients to a food processor, except extra olive oil. Once combined, drizzle olive oil into processor to form a nice creamy pesto. Adjust seasoning to taste and enjoy over pasta, quinoa, with fresh cut veggies or with a spoon!
