Kale Salad At French Meadow

Brunch at French Meadow in Minneapolis is one of our weekend favorites, so when my wife asked if we could goto brunch this morning there wasn't any hesitation.

The classic vegan breakfast (hashbrowns, tofu scramble, vegan sausage, and hemp toast) has been my favorite brunch item for several years, and then my wife suggested I try the kale salad. Yum! I've been getting it everytime since. It is quite tasty and more health promoting.

They use flat kale aka dino kale. They say it is raw, but they clearly have blanched or steamed it for a minute or two. The leaves are softer and slightly curled. They toss it with some gingered tamari and olive oil and sprinkle a generous amount of pumpkin seeds on top. I like mine most with some freshed squeezed lemon. The tangy lemon goes great with the savory seeds.
