MB x BB. WEEKLY RECIPE: Paprika Dressing

IMG_8189.jpg

Ok, so I know this sounds sort of boring - why would I post a recipe of a dressing? what for? 

One of the most common questions I got about our winter 2017 menu was - WHAT DO YOU PUT ON YOUR KALE?!! Not even joking. 

Firstly, yes we dress our kale with a beautiful, delicious and balanced dressing. Why? Because let's be honest - who likes eating plain kale? or ANY greens to be precise. 

If there is anything I have learnt since studying nutrition and having my own foodie/health journey it is to make every meal enjoyable. Gone are the days I would eat steamed broccoli with no flavour and think to myself - just get through this meal, it is good for you - JUST EAT IT!

I want my meals to be good for me and DELICIOUS - hence how Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen started. 

So back to the paprika dressing - head chef Scarlett (legend) came up with a pretty amazing dressing to accompany our sauteed kale (and also used on our seasonal salads).

But why do we love using paprika? It packs a PUNCH - and not just literally! The most impressive of them all is the amount of antioxidants found in just one serving. One of the many antioxidants, carotenoids, are a type of pigment which help fight disease in our bodies. They are a fat soluble nutrient which means absorbed best when consumed with good fats (I'm looking at you Cobram Estate EVOO).

So do yourself a favour and jump onto Barry Bros. Online, order the ingredients and start enjoying your GREENS!
