Brooklyn’s “Sun in Bloom’s” Vegan Macro Salad

IMG_4061 (2)

Hi everyone, 

Last month I went on a trip to New York and had lunch at a really cool vegan restaurant in Brooklyn, named “Sun in Bloom”  which was recommended by veganspecialist Kim-Julie Hansen. Their signature dish is Chef Aimee’s Macro Salad, which was an amazing vegan salad. I love to try out and get inspired by these vegan restaurants when traveling. 

The base is kale, massaged with a creamy dressing. Then Aimee added sauerkraut, which was a surprisingly nice addition. These fermented foods are a great source of probiotics and have many more healthbenefits (more info).  

Further ingredients are roasted pumpkin or butternut, avocado, wakame, spiced pumpkin seeds, cayenne. In the recipe here below, I give you two different dressings, of which I prefer my Ginger-Sesame-Miso-Tahini Dressing, but I also give you a slightly easier one.  

It’s an absolute ‘superfood’ salad! Try it out and I would love to hear from you! #Yvetteshealthykitchen

Much Aloha Yvette
