Recipe Alert🚨+ Immune Superfood Spotlight: KALE🥬
As a member of the cabbage family, kale is loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants that play proactive roles in our overall well-being.🌟 Kale contains vitamins A and C and several other antioxidants that boost your immune system💥 Kale is also packed with important minerals such as potassium and calcium, which help support and maintain healthy bones, and is high in magnesium— which is a critical mineral responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions in our bodies. And that is just the tip of the iceberg for what kale can do…🤩
1 bunch kale.
1 c. cubed butternut squash.
1/4 tbsp. olive oil.
1/4 tsp salt.
1/3 c. toasted pumpkin seeds.
1/2 c. pomegranate seeds.
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar.
If your squash is raw, a simple way to prep butternut squash is by roasting in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, then toss the butternut squash cubes in 1 tbsp of olive oil with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Place in a baking pan and position on a center rack in the oven and let it roast for about 15 mins or until just tender.
In a large bowl, combine the kale, oil, and salt. Using your hands, massage the leaves, rubbing them with the oil and salt until they become softer, smaller, and darker, about 2 minutes. Add the roasted squash, pumpkin and pomegranate seeds and gently toss to combine. Add the vinegar and toss again. Check the seasonings, adding a little more oil and/or vinegar, if needed, and serve.
