Cranberry Kale Salad


If you want an easy way to add some greens to your holiday table, this salad is for you.  My Grandpa used to make cranberry bread for Thanksgiving, and this is basically that — in salad form.  Cranberries, walnuts, orange, all mixed together … it’s like the holidays in a bowl!   Originally posted at and reprinted from Esther at A,B,C,Vegan. This makes a moderate amount as everyday fare, so if you’d like a larger portion to serve at holiday meals, the recipe doubles or triples easily. Photos by Rachael Braun.  more→


Kale Doughnuts

Glazed kale doughnuts

Want to eat your greens but really just want to eat dessert? Here ya go. These are reminiscent of zucchini bread, but different. A rich earthiness, but blended with warm spices and sweetened just right. With the benefits of drinking a green smoothie for breakfast … how about a green donut instead? With all of the veggies, whole grains, and nuts, these end up being a hearty filling breakfast that really keeps you going — and smiling — all morning. Originally posted at and reprinted from Esther at A,B,C,Vegan.
