Tip

*Can make quinoa in thermomix first but I find the microwave easier!

Can substitute raisons for craisins

Can add feta and avocado to step 4 but it will be incoporated into the dressing and not as individual pieces.

Recipe can easily be doubled, just chop kale by bunches.

  • This was so good as a base recipe! I had to switch...

    This was so good as a base recipe! I had to switch out some of the ingredients to work with what was in the cupboard but wow! I was so surprised how much I ate and although full, I feel I could eat more, so light in the tummy!

    So I used dried apricots and apple instead of craisens, tomatoes instead of capsicum which ai sprinkled on the top and I skipped the cheese and nuts because I didn’t have any. I could have sprinkled some parmesan on top.

  • Kale and quinoa salad -

    Kale and quinoa salad - Delicious! This is a super healthy salad and a great way to use up the kale growing in my garden. I cooked the quinoa (1/2 cup) in the Thermomix while I prepared the other ingredients. I used half a Granny Smith apple instead of the craisins, the optional avocado, and served for lunch with the leftover quinoa. This made 2 lunch-sized portions. A definite make again! Five stars! Thanks for sharing!

    Seriously good! I added sunflower seeds and pepitas instead of almonds and it still tasted amazing. Thanks!
