Baked Kale Loaf

Baked Vegan Kale Loaf

I generally don’t follow recipes and tend to use whatever is in the press or fridge. Today I wanted a light loaf without the usual nuts and beans that go into vegetarian meatless loaves. So, here’s today’s version …

  • 500 grams of kale
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 carrot
  • 4 large mushrooms
  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • Medium sized yellow pepper
  • 1/4 cup of walnut oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 2 cups of jumbo oatflakes
  • 1 tbsp of dried sage
  • 1 tbsp of dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 6 tbsp of water
  1. Clean the mushrooms and slice into a food processor with the carrot and shallot and blend, transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Wash and destalk the kale and blend with walnut oil and lime juice, then add to the bowl and mix with the mushroom and shallot.
  3. Now blend the tomatoes, pepper, parsley and sage then transfer to the mixing bowl and combine all ingredients.
  4. Mix chia seeds and water in a glass and set to the side.
  5. Blend the jumbo oat flakes to break them up and add to the mix.
  6. Add the chia seed and water, this acts as a binder, and mix thoroughly.
  7. Use coconut butter to grease a loaf tin or dish and press the mix  down into the dish. Sprinkle sesame seeds or similar on top if you like.
  8. Bake at 170° for 30 minutes or until top has crisped up.
