Cooking is fun. Eating is funner. I cook, photograph and write these recipes. Everything I post on this blog I make from scratch using fresh wholesome ingredients.. I've been cooking since I was a little kid. My recipes are based on trial and error, along with studying cookbooks, family recipes, blogs and cooking shows. Some of the veggies and herbs I use are grown in my garden. Yay sustainability! I'm working on making my yard into an edible landscape. It's really fun to go out in the garden and pick your veggies for dinner! I'm helping as many people as I can to plant edible gardens in their yards too. It's hard work but it's really fun!

Sesame Noodles with Garden Kale

Kale is a superfood, especially when it’s covered with sweet, spicy dressing. 

We have tons of red kale growing out back, it volunteered from kale which I let go to seed last June. I’m glad I did because it’s yummy! The thing I like most about having an edible garden is you always have some kind of food, there’s no need to go to the store all the time. You save $ and time.

When I went outside to water the garden, I remembered a friend telling me about a peanut kale dish she had at a restaurant in Los Feliz. She said it was so good it was like spicy candy. I decided to give it a try.  I made a basic sesame noodle type dressing, which I’ve made lots of times before, then I added extra sugar for the candy effect.

Here’s how I made this: Boil water, blanch kale for 1 minute until it turns bright green. Remove with a slotted spoon. Add soba noodles to the same pot, cook soba noodles for 3 - 4 minutes. 

Drain noodles. Toss with the kale and sesame peanut dressing: 

In a small bowl, grate 1/2 inch ginger root, grate 1 large garlic clove, add 2 tblsp soy sauce, 2 tblsp rice wine vinegar, juice of 1 orange or tangerine, 1 tblsp sesame oil, 2 tblsp sugar, 2 tblsp tahini (sesame paste) and 1 tblsp peanut butter, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes. Mix and taste. If it’s not just the way you like, adjust sugar and vinegar a little at a time. Garnish with sesame seeds and samba oelek.

Yum!
