Hot Winter Salad

Submitted by Lisa Janz, TCSA member

1/2 bunch of kale
1 bunch of turnip tops
1 daikon, or 1 bunch red radishes
2 small, or 1 large turnip
1/2 onion
2 small tomatoes (optional)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoon sesame seeds
1/8 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
salt to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Cut onion into meduim thick half rings.  Cut daikon into quaters lengthwise
and then 2 inch lengths.  Half turnip and cut thick slices.

3. Mix maple syrup, oil, spices, garlic, sesame seeds.  Mix together with root
vegetables.  Put into a wide, shallow baking dish, like a pie plate and bake
covered for 15 minutes.  Uncover and bake until lightly browned and tender.

4. Steam kale with a sprinkling of salt (I cook rice with this and steam the
greens in the tray above the rice).  Cook until wilted but not soggy.

5. If using tomatoes, cut into small cubes and sprinkle with salt.

6. When root vegetables are done, add greens and tomatoes to baking dish and
toss.  Serve warm.
