Kale & Cous Cous 3

I got this wonderful recipe from Nubia Sutton’s Youtube vlog. Unfortunately, she no longer keeps the video posted because Couscous may be a problem for those who have trouble digesting gluten. But feel free to click on the video above and revel in the awesomeness that is Nubia Sutton (womb priestess, raw foodist, and holistic practitioner)

Raw Kale and Couscous Salad
Ingredients
2 cups of cups of whole wheat Couscous
1 large size ripe tomato, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium avocado, diced
1 ½ to 2 bunches of Kale
½ cup of nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of powdered garlic
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
1 handful of alfalfa sprouts
2 1/2 cups of water
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of spike unsalted seasoning
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1/3 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper
Prep time and assembling time included is 30 minutes
This is a salad that is absolutely delicious. You just can’t go wrong with it. You can add more of your favorite veggies like thinly sliced carrots or radishes. It is completely up to you.
I didn’t even know this until I saw Nubia Sutton mention it on her Vlog but Couscous doesn’t have to be cooked. You can simply take the 2 cups of Couscous and put it in a bowl with water. Make sure that the water is level with the Couscous. Then allow it to soak all the water completely. After which you can just fluff it with a fork and set it aside until you are ready to use it in the salad.
Take your 1 ½ to 2 bunches of Kale and wash it thoroughly. After washing place the Kale on top of each other roll them up and begin slicing them into thin strips. Similar to the way one prepares collard greens. If this seems too complicated you can always just tear them by hand into small pieces. Discard the stalks they aren’t part of the recipe.
Place the Couscous, Kale, and diced tomatoes, onion, minced garlic, and avocado in the large bowl or pot. Pour on the four table spoons of Olive Oil. You may even find yourself adding more than the four tablespoons because you want the salad to be well coated. Keep stirring the ingredients together and add more Olive Oil if needed to coat everything well.
Begin adding the other seasonings such as the garlic powder, sea salt , nutritional yeast, aminos and everything listed above in the ingredients list. Keep stirring to make sure that everything is well mixed together. Also add in the Alfalfa sprouts and stir them into the salad.
Let the salad chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle. Then Enjoy!
