Found these two salad recipes and tried them both yesterday. So yummy! Both are vegan, healthy and super easy.
First up is my favorite.
Roasted Yam and Kale Salad
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
2 T. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 T. olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch of kale, washed, ribs removed and chopped into bite size pieces
2 T. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. thyme
Preheat oven to 400. Put sweet potatoes into a gallon zipper bag with 2 T.olive oil, and shake. Salt and pepper to taste. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes.

Heat 1 T. olive oil with garlic and onion. Caramelize onions, about 15 minutes. After onions are caramelized, turn off heat and add kale to pan with lid on. Leave for only about 8 minutes. Just to slightly tender and brighten in color. Refrigerate till ready to serve. Mix vinegar and thyme toss over salad, EAT!

This salad is so delicious and with so few ingredients you will be surprised.


Second is another easy but crazy good salad.
Curried Quinoa Salad
1 cup quinoa
1 tsp. curry powder
1 carrot, grated
1/4 cup of dried cranberries
1 can chickpeas, washed and drained
thin sliced 1/4 purple onion
salt and pepper to taste
Cook quinoa according to package, but add curry before cooking. Once cooked remove from pot to cool in bowl. Add carrot, cranberries, onion and chickpeas. Salad and pepper to taste, EAT!


Eating healthy is easy when the food is this good. Enjoy! Smiley

My thoughts exactly! I love filling up on hearty salads this time of year. Plus, it's a bonus to not have to turn the oven on in this hot weather Smiley.

Thanks for sharing!

I am using the salad for loose the weight and I am very happy I succeeded to loose my weight near about 8 to 10 kg within 2 months. It's amazing and i am full mood to continue with that.
