Perfect warm salad of veggies…optional eggs & smoked salmon

If you like this vegetarian version you will love it with added egg and smoked salmon

Ingredients

coconut oil for the pan
kale
red cabbage
carrot (chunkily grated)
garlic
sauerkraut (home-made)

sesame seeds
broken dehydrated seeded crackers (quinoa, almond, buckwheat, amaranth)
salt, pepper, chilli
olive oil
apple cider vinegar

Optional

herb pesto (vegan, home-made- herbs, macadamias)
avocado
soft boiled organic pasture eggs
smoked salmon

Method

  1. If you are going to add boiled or poached eggs on top, now would be the time to get these turned on.  I do my boiled eggs in an egg cooker – a fab piece of kitchen equipment i can’t live without!.  Of course the poached eggs take some standing over, so I would do these after the veggies are cooked, but get the water hot now. (You tube poached eggs if you need to know this).
  2. Strip the kale off the stalks by pulling them down from the top end.  Cut the kale and cabbage thinly and place in a bowl, pour over some apple cider vinegar and scrunch in with your hands to ‘pre-digest’ it.
  3. Coarsely grate the carrot and crush your garlic, and keep aside.  if you are adding smoked salmon at the end, cut this in slices now and also put the to side.
  4. Heat the coconut oil in the pan, and add the kale and cabbage. This is at medium heat and for only a few minutes.  We want to keep it very short cooked, easy to digest, and good for your thyroid (if goitrogens are a problem for you, cooking these veggies make them work nicely).  Most of all we want to keep the colour in the food — this keeps the max. nutrients.
  5. Take off the heat, stir in the carrot, some sesame seeds, the crushed seed crackers, salt pepper, chilli, garlic, a dash of olive oil, a spoonful (per person) of sauerkraut, and plate up nicely in the centre of the plate.  The idea for any delicious loving meal you are cooking,  is flavour and texture, so you can use any substitutes you want here, particularly with seeds or nuts. Optional here is a big spoonful of home-made pesto.
  6. If you are adding the optionals here, add the smoked salmon strips, either a whole avocado half on the side or cut some avocado slices.  Add the eggs and cut in half to allow the soft inside to run, and serve quickly.  Enjoy!
