Boom! Kale & Spinach Salad


The Superbowl is just around the corner and we thought you might like to add a dash of green to your Sunday menu. We want you to be confident your guests will ask for more!


Prep Time: 15 mins

Serves: 4-5


What you’ll Need


4 cups of Kale

2 cups of Baby Spinach

1 cup of Red Cabbage, chopped

1 ½ cups of Spiralized Sweet Potato Noodles, cooked and seasoned

½ cup of Chickpeas, roasted

½ cup of Raw Unsalted Sunflower Seeds


Homemade Boom! Dressing

1 ½ tbsp Olive Oil

1 tbsp Honey

1 tbsp Black Pepper

½ cup Fresh Lemon Juice


Easy Steps


Prep your leafy greens by rinsing off excess dirt and pat dry with paper towel or clean cloth.


Separate the Kale from the stem by pulling off the leaves with your fingers or by using a knife.


Once the leaves are separated, chop them into smaller bite-sized pieces and place them in a bowl. Now for the fun part! Massage the Kale with your hands! Yes that's right! Make sure your hands are clean of course. Gently squeeze handfuls for about 20 to 30 seconds. This step makes the Kale softer and easier to enjoy.


Toss in the Baby Spinach, Red Cabbage, Sweet Potato Spirals, Sunflower Seeds and Chickpeas.


To make the dressing, whisk together the Lemon Juice, Honey, Olive Oil  and Black Pepper in a separate bowl.


Feel free to add as little or as much Honey that suits your taste!


Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss, toss, toss!


Wasn’t that easy? We thought so too.

Crispy Salmon Cakes
Bake-in-A-minute-Fish-Cakes-Ify Yani.jpg

This recipe works very well with fresh minced salmon as well. But if all you’ve got is canned Sockeye Salmon, follow along and enjoy!


Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 8 mins


What you’ll need


2 cans of Sockeye Salmon

½ cup Bake in a Minute Mix

¼ cup of Red Onions, diced

¼ cup of Fresh Chopped Spinach

2 tsps Garlic Powder

2 tbsp of Coconut Oil

1 Egg

1 tsps Cracked Peppercorn

½ tsp Sea Salt



Here we go!


Drain the cans of Salmon and place in a large bowl then discard any bones.


In a separate smaller bowl, combine the Bake in a Minute Mix with the Egg, Garlic Powder, Cracked Peppercorn and Salt then mix with a wooden spoon.


Add diced Onions and Spinach to the Salmon using a fork to mix and separate chunks.


Once separated, add the Bake in a Minute Mix.


Gently combine and form into 6 medium sized patties using your hands.


Heat the Coconut Oil in a non stick frying pan and add the patties. Allow each patty to brown on each side; about 3 - 4  minutes for both sides until heated through.


The Coconut oil will add a beautiful crisp outer layer to the patties. Olive oil is also a great substitute for this simple recipe too.


Enjoy with a side salad and your favorite aioli!
