Hormone Healthy Vegan Caesar Salad

In today’s fast-paced world, hormonal health is more important than ever, influencing everything from our mood to our metabolism. While many factors contribute to hormonal balance, one often overlooked aspect is diet. That’s why this salad has nutrient-rich kale, protein-packed chickpeas, crunchy pumpkin seeds, creamy avocado, and nutty hemp seeds, all perfectly complemented by a vegan Caesar dressing. Each ingredient is carefully selected not only for its taste and texture but also for its potential to promote hormonal harmony.

Salad Ingredients

4 cups of kale, thinly sliced
1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 T avocado oil for coating the chickpeas (1T) and massaging the kale (1T)
3/4 cup of toasted sourdough croutons (I make mine homemade with organic sourdough in a pan with olive oil)
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1 large ripe avocado diced

Dressing Ingredients

1/4 cup tahini
1/3 cup cashew yogurt
2 T Dijon Mustard
juice of 1/2 large lemon
1/4 cup of water
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 T organic miso paste
sea salt and pepper to taste (I added Herbamare)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven or air fryer to 400 F.
  2. Toss the chickpeas in a separate bowl with avocado oil, a pinch of salt and pepper, and a pinch of garlic and onion powder. Spread them evenly on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes until crispy. Toss halfway through to ensure they roast evenly.
  3. Whisk together the tahini, cashew yogurt, dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and miso paste until smooth in a separate bowl. Adjust the consistency with water if necessary.
  4. Massage the kale in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Assemble the salad and toss with dressing.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
