If you are on my Metabolic Balance Plan, or not, it is always fun to get a bit creative and keep food interesting and tasty! In these colder days, I do not fancy cold salads as much, so threw this warm kale salad together in no time, using the daily apple recommended in the plan. You can substitute the eggs for any other protein. Chicken will work particularly well, or even salmon. Happy cooking!
Cooking time: 15 min
Ingredients (6 portions):
Kale (approx. 100gr)
Onion (approx. 10-25 gr)
Olive oil (1 tbsp)
Salt (a pinch)
Black pepper (to taste)
Your protein of choice: chicken, two eggs, salmon, etc.
Wash, chop and steam the kale for 10 minutes, so it is more tender to cook.
While the kale is steaming, chop the onion and any other veggies you might want to add and set aside.
Wash and chop the apple, and set aside with the onion.
Prepare a pan with the oil and place over medium heat.
Remove the kale from the steamer and strain if necessary (meaning if it is very wet).
When the oil on the pan is hot, add the kale, chopped veggies and apple and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occassionally.
While the kale and apple cook, prepare the protein you would like to have. If doing eggs or chicken, you can boil them/roast ahead of time and just add on top the salad.
When the apple and kale are tender and the onions are a bit translucent, your veggies are ready! Just plate them and add your protein of choice.
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
Serve & enjoy!
