Dr Will Cole’s revolutionary Ketotarian programme harnesses the fat-burning power of keto, but with the nutritious, delicious benefits of a mostly plant-based plate.
PREP: 20 minutes STAND: 1 to 2 hours
50g thin slivers sweet onion
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
75g trimmed, torn fresh kale leaves
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon coarse salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
50g fresh baby spinach leaves
1 small avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced
60g fresh raspberries
15g large flaked coconut, toasted
4 tablespoons torn fresh basil leaves
1 In a small bowl, combine the onion and juice; toss to coat. Press down on the onion to submerge it as much as possible. Cover; let stand for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours (refrigerate if standing for more than 1 hour).
2 Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the kale, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1⁄8 teaspoon salt. Using clean ﬁ ngers, gently massage and mix the kale leaves with the oil mixture until the kale has wilted slightly. If needed, cover and chill 1 to 2 hours before serving.
3 Drain the onion, reserving 1 tablespoon of the soaking juice. In a small bowl, combine the reserved soaking juice, the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the remaining 1⁄8 teaspoon salt, and the pepper.
4 To serve, toss the spinach with the kale in a bowl. Divide the kale mixture between two serving plates. Top evenly with the onion, avocado, raspberries, coconut, and basil. Drizzle with the dressing.
