  • 1 bunch kale, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan sea salt


Rinse the kale, and steam over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until bright green. Uncover and place the kale in a serving plate.

Place sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat. Toast for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until seeds turn golden brown. Place sesame seeds and Himalayan Sea Salt in a mortar and pestle and grind them into a coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of kale.


Kale has powerful nutrients that start the moment you begin to eat this wonderful vegetable. After experiencing “chemo brain” after breast cancer treatment, kale literally brought my brain back from a fog. If you aren’t used to the taste, keep trying because the benefits are worth it!
