Warm Kale Salad with Sweet Potato, Chorizo and Poached Egg (with Florette Salad)


Reading my blog, you may end up deducing that I don't cook. That's very incorrect. I cook a lot, also bake a lot and drink a lot of tea. What do I cook? It ranges from western style to Chinese to Japanese/Korean to Mexican to Indian to other parts of the world. It really depends on what I buy from the market to what recipes I come across to dishes that I want to recreate that I have eaten at some dining establishments. Because of the lack of equipments I have at home, I have to compromise on what I can make out of the recipes. So watch this space, I will be creating a lot more recipes.

I love eating salad, especially drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar. It seems like a boring thing, salad that is. Salad is not just about lettuce. You can be very creative with it and it can be very delicious. In partnership with Florette Salad, I made a tasty salad with two superfoods. Using their new product, baby kale salad along with sweet potatoes. Kale contains vitamins A (benefits our skin and vision), K (it contributes to bone health and blood clotting) and C (helping to boost the immune system), as well as sulforaphane, a chemical compound with antioxidant, anti-cancer and antimicrobial properties, that stimulates natural detoxifying enzymes, contained in cruciferous vegetables. Not only that, it's high in fibre, high in iron and high in calcium. 

Why not try this salad as an alternative for you lunch?

you are probably right. Knowing you I never thought that you cook but this is simply lovely. I love salad too, especially when you have got good and fresh ingredients.
