Detoxifying Kale and Seaweed Salad for Springtime Cleansing.

Here’s a wonderful way to help facilitate your springtime cleanse with seaweed and kale.

From Wikipedia: Arame is a traditional food and has been a part of a balanced diet in Japan for centuries. Arame is known to be rich in dietary fibre and essential minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium. According to Japanese folklore, it aids health and beauty and the thick, black, lustrous hair of the Japanese is connected to this regular consumption of small amounts of arame.

Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties;  is considered to be anti-inflammatory, very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties.

On to the recipe:

Soak 3/4 c dry Arame Seaweed in water overnight.  It will double in size.

Rinse well and toss with 1 large bunch of chopped Kale.

In another bowl mix together:

3T Raw Tahini

3T lemon juice

2T Namu Shoyu (raw enzymatic rich soy sauce)

1/2 inch fresh ginger grated

Combine and mix in seaweed and kale.  Add avocado, chopped cherry tomatoes and pine nuts.

~enjoy!

    This looks great. I'm going to write down the ingredients that I don't have and make a pilgrimage to the health food store and stock up. Sounds perfect for spring. Thanks!

      Follow up: Went to health food store and a little packet of Hijiki (about what's called for in this recipe) costs around $25! Ack! Is this normal? None of the other seaweed-type products were anywhere near this expensive – so I got one of those. What makes this stuff so special? I never even heard of it before! Is it really worth the price? Curious.

      • Tamara says:

        No no NO. That is not normal….. Use Arame. It will taste the same in fact I'm going to change the recipe right now. Thank you so much Carol! :-)

    I just wished I liked seaweed. I keep trying!

    • Tamara says:

      I hear you! It took me a while. This recipe got me going as you cannot taste any seaweed in this…..the tahini dressing really masks it! xo
