Recipes: Ridiculously Delicious Caramelized Onion, Sweet Golden Beet & Kale Salad

I made this for dinner last night... it was ridiculously delicious :)


Caramelized Onion, Sweet Golden Beet & Kale Salad
(Serves 6)

2 Heads of Organic Rainbow Kale (or your choice of Kale, coarsely chopped)
1 Large Organic Sweet Onion (coarsely chopped)
2 Organic Golden Beets (this is really good with red beets as well if you can’t find golden)
1 Tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil
¼ C. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
20-30 Drops Liquid Stevia (or add a couple drops at a time, tasting as you go; stevia and liquid aminos are my standard mixture for a “teriyaki” type of flavored sauce in all my cooking)
Ground Pepper to taste

It’s a good idea to cook the beats prior in the day in a Crockpot (or oven), on high with a little bit of water for 2 hours or so, depending on if you halve or quarter them. Keep testing for softness with a fork. Gently heat coconut oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and sauté until caramelized, about 10-15 minutes. Do not add salt. Add beats (diced into large chunks) until they warm, then add the kale, sautéing and stirring constantly for about 5 minutes, then remove from heat and cover to let the kale steam for another 5 minutes or so. Grind a bit of pepper on top, and there you have it. Simple, easy, and ridiculously delicious! A great compliment to a salmon dish, or even chicken… it is also delicious as its own meal (vegans) served over organic brown rice.
