I’ve been thinking about kale a lot lately, mostly how much I miss it, so when I happened upon a recipe for kale salad with dates, almonds and Parmesan in the December Self, I promptly ripped it out and vowed to make it ASAP.
Since I knew the fella and I wanted to have an at-home brunch this weekend, I decided to tackle most of the meal myself, so I prepped the kale last night, as per the recipe, to soften the hearty greens.
I thought quiche would be a perfect companion, and since we love us some sun-dried tomatoes, I Googled around and found this recipe for a sun-dried tomato
and spinach quiche. The fella thought a nice fillet of salmon would make a fine addition to the salad, so we picked up a really nice piece on our Whole Foods run yesterday.
I think between prepping the quiche and its 45-minute cooking time and cooking the salmon, which the fella drizzled with honey and dusted with brown sugar, brunch took less than an hour and a half.
We got both the mix and the salt at the Whole Foods on Houston Street, and if you like a spicy Mary, you’ll be pleased with this bottle for sure!
The food was super filling and definitely ultra-healthy, which I’m stoked about (sadly, I can’t say that about some of our normal brunch choices). During the whole meal, the fella could not stop raving about brunch, and that made me really happy!
I can’t wait to make these dishes again … and enjoy the leftovers, of course!
