Miso is full of umami flavor, and if you avoid soy, a chickpea miso is now available in most health foods stores. Lime adds brightness and a wonderful zest.  Topped with hemp seeds for a healthy dose of brain and body nourishing fat.

Warm Kale and Sweet Potato Salad

1 T. miso

2 T. olive oil

1 sweet potato

1/4 of a yellow onion

2 c. baby kale

Miso-Ginger-Lime Dressing:

1 t. miso

1 t. ginger

zest and juice of one lime

1/4 c. olive oil

pinch of salt

 

hemp seeds to top

 

Chop the sweet potato into 1/2″ pieces.  Slice the onion thinly.  In a small bowl, whisk together the miso and olive oil. Toss the sweet potatoes and onions in the miso/oil and spread on a baking sheet.  Roast at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the dressing ingredients and place the baby kale in a salad bowl.  When the veggies are caramelized and softened in the oven, remove them and toss them with the kale.  Drizzle the dressing over while still warm.
