Hearty Salads

Lunch inspiration: 10 minute recipe for creamy kale and quinoa salad.

There are some days that I find it hard to prepare fresh meals to consume within the same day that I make it. I usually try to wake up early those days to get my meals sorted. I mostly try to either prep my meals over the weekeneds if I know I have a tough week ahead. One of the days when I didn’t have a good meal prepared I took out the versatile kale from my fridge, and add some quinoa to toss up this beauty. This delish dish is so good for lunch or even dinner. It is light. However, makes you feel fuller for longer as it is high fiber. It has the perfect balance of all the macro nutrients you need. And it is practically a 10 in ute job, which made my life so much easier that day. This salad is perfect for fitness enthusiasts and weightwatchers.
So, here are the ingredients:

  • 1 bowl of kale, with lager stems removed
  • 1/2 lemon or lime
  • 1/2 cup black & red quinoa
  • 1/4 cup of plain cashews
  • Few chives for garnish
  • Salt as per taste


  • Wash the kale leaves and add some lime juice on it to make it a little soft and to get the bitterness out.
  • Boil the quinoa till the time it germinates
  • For the cashew butter: Soak the cashews overnight. Add the cashews, a little bit of sesame oil. Blend the cashews till it turns into a paste. (I usually keep this handy in my refrigerator).
  • Mix it all up.

And voila! Enjoy your meal.
