Warm Broccoli Salad With Kale, Lime + Roasted Tamari Almonds

warm broccoli salad with tamari almonds_MG_7901

If you need a warm nourishing meal that’s quick and easy to make then you can’t go past my warm broccoli salad with kale, lime and roasted tamari almonds. It’s my go to wellness recipe that makes you feel amazing after eating it. Delicious on its own or served with extra protein such as steamed white fish drizzled with extra lime, olive oil and black pepper.  Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner !

What’s great about it:

The broccoli is full of alkalinising, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer  phytonutrients called sulforaphane that work to support optimum health and protect against disease. It’s a true superfood rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, E and CoQ10. Broccoli is also a wonderful source of B group vitamins, vitamin K, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and manganese. Almonds are high in the minerals potassium and magnesium to help nourish the nervous system when under stress. The lime helps to alkalinise whilst the black pepper will enhance digestion and work as an anti-inflammatory.

1 head of broccoli, roughly chopped
½ bunch kale, trimmed and finely sliced
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 generous teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 whole lime
1 bunch coriander, chopped
handful tamari roasted almonds, chopped
Green chilli – optional – but yum

Sauté the broccoli in a large pan with the olive oil, garlic and ginger over a medium heat, making sure to toss the pan occasionally and allow the broccoli to cook through. This should take about 3 minutes.
Add the kale and toss through until just wilted.  Add chili if using.
Squeeze over the lime juice and toss through the coriander. Season to taste add a generous amount of black pepper.
Serve in bowls sprinked with tamari roasted almonds.
Enjoy !
Serves 2

Serve with steamed white fish or earth burgers.

  6. Cristina says:

    Dissent there need to be some liquid to soften the broccoli?. Does it not burn without moisture in the pan?

  7. Dianne says:

    Made this tonight, it was amazing.
    I work in a residential house for youth and cooked it as a side to their chicken. the teenagers/young adults in the program barely touch veg or salads but they demolished it all and left me with a small amount (little sadness).but it’s winner all round and going to become a regular dish .
    Thanks for sharing this teresa

  1. [...] Combine ginger, turmeric, garlic, tamari, lime juice and olive oil into a bowl.  For a smoother paste I love using my mortar which combines the ingredients perfectly. Fold in the finely chopped coriander root. Add the fish fillet and coat well. Wrap the fish individually using baking paper, foil or banana leaf.  Make sure it is really well sealed into a lovely neat little pocket. Steam the fish for 10 minutes until cooked through and remove from the heat. Serve immediately with your choice salad or vegetables.  I love my warm broccoli salad with kale, lime and roasted tamari almonds. [...]
