This may seem like a rather odd combination on the surface,  but let me tell you, this was delicious.  Not only is this velvety sauce a snap to make, but it’s vibrant, healthy and a great way to rock your greens!

 

Creamy Avocado and Coconut-Dressed Greens

Ingredients:

1 lb dinosaur/lacinato kale, cut into thin shreds

1-1/4 cup coconut water, divided

2 cloves garlic, minced

 1 cup avocado

1 long strip of lemon zest

squeeze of lemon juice

1 tsp freshly minced ginger

pinch of salt

coconut oil

Optional:  sesame seeds, to garnish

Directions:

Add a drizzle of coconut oil to a large pan and sauté the garlic until fragrant.  Add the kale and stir through.  Add 1 cup coconut water and cover turning heat to medium low.  Braise the greens until soft.

Add avocado, ginger, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt to a blender.  Add coconut water a little bit at a time until a sauce comes together and has the consistency of tomato ketchup. [You want it on the thick side but still pourable.] 

Once the greens are soft, drain and transfer to a bowl.  Add the sauce and mix well.  Garnish with sesame seeds or lemon zest if you wish.
