Popped Amaranth Granola

Amaranth seeds really do have the miniature popcorn texture as described here and make for a fun texture to munch on. The taste of the granola overall is very light and sweet. The granola makes for very fragile little crumbles, so it works better as a cereal than, say, a trail mix. Would make again, possibly with almonds...but thats just b/c I don't like was still good with cashews.

Raw Kale Salad with Oranges

I tried this when I found myself, oddly, with a surplus of oranges and red russian kale. I am not a serious raw food eater and was pretty skeptical, but I found this surprisingly good. There is certainly that almost overwhelmingly earthy quality to eating a bowl of raw kale, but the simple dressing described here was a nice compliment. Just when you think you couldn't eat any more hearty green,a sudden sweet burst of orange makes everything right again and you're ready to go back for more. I would make this again, maybe as small side or even an edible garnish for a summer lunch. As an entree salad its a little much.
