Kale Tahini Salad

This Kale Tahini Salad is your guaranteed way to get kale into your kids’ diets…and your own. Some people turn up their nose at the thought of kale in their meals even though it is high in fiber, good for digestion, and is extremely versatile.  In addition to its benefits, kale is easy to turn it into a delicious meal or side dish. This salad is high in protein and healthy fats, and is vegetarian friendly too!

Kale Tahini Salad Recipe


  • 3 bunches of kale
  • 1 package of tempeh
  • miso paste
  • sesame seeds
  • sesame oil
  • tamari


  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne (optional to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Note: The above flavouring can be achieved with 1 tablespoon of commercial curry powder …but that’s not as fun.


  1. De-vein kale and steam.
  2. Add spices to olive oil in a frying pan.
  3. Cube up tempeh into bite size pieces and sautee in olive oil at medium heat with all the spices until golden brown.
  4. Massage miso paste into the kale with your hands. Make sure there are no clumps! Also massage in a good splash of tamari and a very small splash of sesame oil. If the kale is still too dry, add more tamari, but not more sesame oil. When the kale is well-coated, toss in a handful of sesame seeds and your sauteed tempeh and stir well.
  5. Refrigerate and serve cold.
