Every made a 'wilt' or 'rub' salad??????


Source: Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine -Gabriel Cousens

Although a raw friend of mine put me on to the rubbing method first


1) Get one bunch of dinosaur (lacinado) kale

2) Remove the main part of kale stem and chop leaves finely into a bowl

3) Add about a tsp of salt and massage or 'rub' into the leaves until they 'wilt'

4) Add about 2 tsp of fresh lemon juice and massage into the kale again


Make a salad out of your wilted kale leaves


Some salad recipes to try:


Hemp Kale Salad

1 bunch kale

1/4 cup hemp seed

1 large tomato, diced

3 Tbsp olive oil or hemp oil for a richer taste

2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp lemon juice to massage into the kale


Note: add the oil last otherwise the kale will not wilt as well


Avocado Kale Salad


1 bunch kale

1 large tomato

1 avocado

1 stalk celery

1/4 cup olives

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp salt to massage into the kale


Take the avocado, olive oil and celery and blend it up into a dressing to pour over the salad.


Garnish with olives.

Yummy Kale, Heck I just eat it, but love the recipes here. I am going to try a couple of them forsure.


This is pretty simple, Kale with hummus,tomatoes and scallions in a whole grain pita. I use calorie free dressing with it, but veganaise is great too if you still need your fat for the day.

I make vegetable soup w/just water, onions, celery, carrots, zucchini & bok choy. I add salt & pepper to taste & add kale about 10 min b4 its done. The kale gets tender like swiss chard but more firm & has a delicate taste. That's my favorite way to eat kale

Yes, kale chips are awesome! I could eat these every day.


It's also good sauteed with garlic. If you have Vegan With a Vengeance, look at the Garlicy Kale recipe. The recipe includes a sauce for it, but I've only made it plain and I like it just fine.
