Healthy Eating: Kale with Balsamic-Walnut Sauce
This sauce is a perfect topping for kale and other hearty vegetables.
1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves coarsely chopped
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. dijon mustard
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. maple syrup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped walnuts
3 to 4 tbsp. water
Steam kale until leaves are limp, about four to five minutes. In a food processor, combine vinegar, mustard, soy sauce, syrup and garlic. Add walnuts and process until a smooth paste develops. Thin the mixture by adding water until the desired thickness is reached. To serve, top each helping of steamed kale with a spoonful of walnut sauce.
