  • 1 small Peak of the Market beet, washed, peeled and finely diced (1)
  • 1 small sweet potato, washed, peeled, and finely diced (1)
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil (15 mL)
  • 1/4 cup amaranth seeds, rinsed and drained (60 mL)
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained well (60 mL)
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp almonds, whole (20 mL)
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp cashews, whole (20 mL)
  • 2 figs, sliced (2)
  • 1 avocado, sliced (1)

Green Goddess Dressing

  • 1/2 cup canola oil (125 mL)
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp lemon juice (20 mL)
  • 1 tsp Dijion mustard (5 mL)
  • 1/4 cup crème fraîche or plain Greek yogurt (60 mL)
  • 2 tsp garlic minced (10 mL)
  • 1/4 cup chopped herbs (chives, tarragon, parsley, mint, cilantro) (60 mL)

Roast Vegetables

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, toss Brussels sprouts, sweet potato and beets with canola oil and distribute evenly. Tip: Keep beets separated to one side of the pan as they will leach out colour.
  3. Roast vegetables for 30 minutes or until tender.
  4. Set aside and allow to completely cool.

Cooking Amaranth

  1. Bring 3/4 cup water (175 mL) to a boil in a pot. Add 1/4 cup amaranth (60 mL). Cover, reduce heat and simmer until water is absorbed, about 10-20 minutes. Makes about 1/2 cup (125 mL).
  2. Measure out 1/4 cup cooked amaranth and set aside. Store the rest in an air-tight container and keep in fridge for up to 3 days. Add to salads throughout the week.

Dressing

  1. In a glass jar or small bowl, combine canola oil, lemon juice and Dijion mustard, and mix together until well combined.
  2. Add in crème fraiche and garlic, mixing until well combined.
  3. Gently add in mixed herbs and fold into the rest of the mixture.

Marinate Kale

  1. In a large bowl marinate kale with green goddess dressing and set aside.

Pan-Toasted Nuts

  1. In a small frying pan, roast almonds and cashews over medium-high heat until lightly fragrant and lightly browned.

Assembly

  1. Add in the remaining ingredient with kale and toss together.
  2. Divide ingredients equally among four bowls and serve immediately.
