  • 1 cup Diamond of California¬ģ Shelled Walnuts
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • spoonful of mild/medium salsa to use as dressing
  • optional: yogurt or sour cream for topping

The Steps

  1. Place kale in a large bowl, then drizzle it with 2 tbsp olive oil. Using your hands, gently massage the kale for 30 seconds, which will help break down the bitterness of the kale; set aside.
  2. Add walnuts and spices to your food processor and pulse for 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a large skillet and heat for 3-5 minutes or until walnuts are warmed to your liking. The mixture should resemble ground beef.
  3. Pour cooked beans and walnut meat over the kale, then add the tomatoes, cheese, avocado, salsa, and yogurt/sour cream.
  4. Enjoy!
