Happy Hormone Vegan Lemon Kale Caesar Salad

welcome to the world of Happy Hormone Vegan Lemon Kale Caesar Salad!

this vibrant dish is not only a treat for your taste buds but also a powerhouse of nutrients that can help support women’s hormones in a deliciously satisfying way.

let’s start with the taste.

imagine the zingy freshness of lemon with the creamy richness of tahini and coconut yogurt, all enveloping the earthy goodness of lacinato kale and crunchy chickpeas. it’s just truly divine!

now, let’s talk texture.

the thinly sliced lacinato kale provides a hearty base that’s tender yet sturdy, while the roasted chickpeas add a satisfying crunch.

the toasted bread crumbs and pumpkin seeds offer a great contrast, and the creamy avocado brings everything together in a silky finish.

ah, the dressing. it’s truly the star of the show.

the combination of tahini, coconut yogurt, dijon mustard, lemon juice, and miso paste creates a velvety smooth texture with a perfect balance of tanginess and umami flavors.

it’s so delicious, you’ll want to drizzle it on everything!

now, let’s talk substitutions.

feel free to get creative with this recipe!

if you don’t have lacinato kale, you can use any other variety of kale or even spinach.

don’t have chickpeas?

try roasted tofu or tempeh instead. and if you’re out of tahini, almond butter or cashew butter can work as a tasty alternative.

but why is this salad particularly good for women’s hormones?

well, the ingredients in this salad are packed with nutrients that can help support hormonal balance.

kale is rich in vitamin K, which can help regulate estrogen levels, while chickpeas are a great source of magnesium, a mineral that can ease symptoms of PMS.

the dressing ingredients like tahini and coconut yogurt provide healthy fats that are essential for hormone production.

now, let’s talk storage.

if you have any leftovers (which is rare because it’s so delicious), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

the salad will keep well for a day or two, but it’s best enjoyed fresh for maximum flavor and texture.

in conclusion, happy hormone vegan lemon kale caesar salad is not just a salad—it’s a celebration of flavor, texture, and nourishment.

whether you’re looking to support your hormonal health or simply craving a delicious meal, this salad has got you covered.

Ingredients

  • for the salad:
    2 bunches of lacinato kale, thinly sliced
    1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    avocado oil for coating the chickpeas and massaged the kale
    3/4 cup toasted sourdough bread crumbs (can use gluten free or any kind you want. toasted pieces of bread/croutons would also be great)
    1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
    1/4 cup hemp hearts
    1 large ripe avocado, diced

    for the dressing:
    1/4 cup tahini
    1/3 cup thick coconut yogurt
    2 tablespoons dijon mustard
    juice of 1/2 large lemon

    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 tablespoon miso paste
    sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • preheat the oven: preheat your oven to 400°f (200°c).


  • roast the chickpeas: in a bowl, toss the chickpeas with avocado oil until evenly coated. spread them out on a baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until crispy. remove halfway through and toss to ensure even cooking.


  • prepare the dressing: in a small bowl, whisk together tahini, coconut yogurt, dijon mustard, lemon juice, water, garlic powder, onion powder, and miso paste until smooth. adjust the consistency with more water if necessary.


  • massage the kale: place the thinly sliced kale in a large mixing bowl and lightly massage it with a tiny bit of oil.

  • assemble the salad: add the roasted chickpeas, toasted bread crumbs, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts, and diced avocado to the bowl with the kale. add the dressing and toss everything together until well combined.


  • serve: divide the salad among serving plates or bowls. drizzle with the remaining dressing if desired. enjoy your happy hormone vegan lemon kale caesar salad!

  1. When you say coconut yogurt, do you mean nondairy coconut milk yogurt or do you mean Greek yogurt that’s coconut flavored?

  2. I plan on making this salad this week, I couldn’t find coconut yogurt (normally I can) so I opted for almond yogurt. Would that still work?
