Sesame rice salad with kale and red cabbage
Ingredients/ Zutaten
  • Two handfuls of kale leaves, separated from the stems
  • One eighth of a head of red cabbage
  • 100 grams (or half a cup) of rice
  • One teaspoon of tahini
  • Two teaspoons of mild soy sauce
  • Two teaspoons of sesame oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Half a teaspoon each of white and black sesame
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Preparation/ Zubereitung
  1. Wash the rice well in a colander to reduce the level of starch, until the water comes off clear when you strain it. Then bring to a boil with one cup of water and cook until tender but still firm, about ten minutes. When done, strain the rice if necessary and set aside.
  2. Prep the veggies: tear or chop the kale leaves into bite size pieces and finely shred the red cabbage (it works best with a mandoline).
  3. Mix the tahini, sesame oil, soy sauce and lemon juice.
  4. Now pour the dressing over the kale leaves in a large bowl and massage them with your hands for a few minutes.
  5. Add the red cabbage and the rice, mix well.
  6. Crush the sesame seeds a little bit using a mortar and pestle, then sprinkle them over the salad.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Enjoy!
