Kale Marinade


As I’m sure you’ve heard, kale is a superfood. It has more iron per gram than red meat. But kale can be very hard to chew because it’s so fibrous. Behold the most amazing marinade over raw kale: Ani Phyo’s Sunflower Thyme Marinade. Ani’s marinade softens the kale and is so flavorful, you’ll forget how good it is for you.

Ani Phyo’s Sunflower Thyme Marinade
2 T thyme
1 clove garlic
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup sunflower seeds soaked an hour or more and then drained
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 t sea salt
2 T lemon juice

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Marinade will keep for 3-4 days and makes enough for a few salads.
