“I’ll take the garlic with a side of salad please – with extra garlic”

Ok so I think after making my curried cauliflower & spinach salad I am now obsessed with warm salads.

I have been having them for my lunch this week as part of my stop-eating-so-much-crap plan and they definitely do leave me satisfied. I think the fact that the salad is warm helps too, doesn’t feel like a boring, cold bowl of leaves.

I am also obsessed with garlic, so it only seems natural to combine 2 obsessions into a big bowl of wholesomeness.

I’ve used kale in this salad as I want to try and eat more of this powerful leafy green. I’ve found it can usually be quite over powering (gross) in salads so the garlic oil does a good job of making it edible. I made my own garlic oil for this recipe which I haven’t done before and it is so easy and SO GOOD.

Why not buy a big bunch of kale and make kale chips too? Happy hump day people – Jess x
