Peeps, I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with kale. I don’t mean that I like kale and try to use it often. I mean I am disturbingly-might-possibly-need-help-in-freaking-LOVE with kale. I think it’s delicious, easy to cook with, good raw, great in a stirfry, lovely in smoothies (except for the green teeth, but we’ll overlook that) and amazingly healthy. So, when I was trying to come up with a new & speedy lunchtime recipe the other day, this ‘inspiration’ recipe from Maple Spice seemed like it could use a little … KALE!
1 packet organic soba noodles
1 massive handful (or two) sliced organic kale
M's favourite soy dressing (see below)
Cook the soba noodles according to the directions, rinse with cool water and set aside. Meanwhile, dry-fry the kale and by all means, feel free to eat some directly from the pan! Toss noodles and kale in a bowl (I use a big plastic one with a lid – you’ll see why in a minute). Now for the dressing. Exact quantities vary depending on how much you’re making, but you should aim to pour equal parts of the following ingredients into a small jar:
Add 1-2 cloves of pressed garlic, screw on the lid and shake. Pour onto the delicious kale and soba noodle concoction, add a sprinkle of sesame seeds, snap on the lid and shake again. Serve and eat. Quickly too… there are certain unnamed parties (I can’t say who due to a super-injunction) that may or may not try to keep stealing ‘just a bite’…
