1/2 bunch kale rinsed and sliced
1/2 capsicum sliced (yellow or red)
1/4 red cabbage sliced thinly
1/2 coriander bunch
2 carrots thinly sliced OR grated
1 tbsp red curry paste
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp pure peanut butter
1 clove crushed garlic
1 tsp honey OR 1tsp maple syrup OR 1 tsp xylitol OR 2 drops stevia liquid
Juice of 1 lime
Optional toppings: Coriander leaves, hemp seeds, roasted peanuts, 1/2 avocado sliced, chilli flakes
Fill your kettle and boil. Pour boiling water into a small saucepan to fill 3 inches and add eggs then simmer on medium heat for 10minutes then set aside.
Place chopped kale in a bowl and pour the rest of the boiled water from the kettle into the bowl to just cover the kale. Place a plate ontop of the bowl to allow the kale to steam for 2-3minutes until the kale turns bright green. Next strain in a colander and leave on bench to cool.
Next, place all dressing ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until very smooth
Finally prepare the salad by mixing the rest of the salad ingredients in a bowl. Then drizzle the dressing on top and add the eggs (or protein of choice) and toppings. Enjoy!
* You can swap the egg for your protein of choice- sauteed tofu or tempeh, chicken, chickpeas, fillet salmon
