This is a wonderful way to enjoy kale. Easy to make, and hearty and filling, too!

  • Servings: 2 large servings or 4 small servings
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes


1 Large Bunch of Kale, hard spine removed), chopped (bite-sized or a little larger pieces
1 Carrot, julienned
½ cup Peanut Butter
2 Tbsp Tamari, soy sauce would work as a substitute
2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 Tbsp Agave Nectar
Pinch Red Pepper
Sesame Seeds, for garnish


Fill a steamer basket with the kale and carrot and steam over boiling water in a large saucepan until the vegetables soften, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from the pan and transfer to a large bowl.

While the vegetables are steaming, in a small bowl whisk together the peanut butter, water, tamari, rice vinegar, agave nectar, and red pepper until smooth and well-blended. Toss the vegetables with the dressing until well combined. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Note: Creamy peanut butter may yield a smoother sauce.
