8-9 large stalks of raw kale (I strongly recommend using lacinato or dinosaur kale), finely chopped into slivers
7-8 button or crimini mushrooms, thickly chopped, stems removed
1 1/2 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
1 1/2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
1 ripe avocado, chopped
3-4 tbsp nama shoyu* (unpasteurized soy sauce) or other high-quality soy sauce
*What is nama shoyu? It's unrefined soy sauce: THE REAL THING. "Nama" means raw in Japanese. This stuff will blow your mind with its rich salty flavor:
That generic soy sauce you see on grocery store shelves should all be thrown in the garbage, and you'll understand why when you taste nama shoyu!
How does generic soy sauce taste compared to nama shoyu? Think skim milk compared to whole milk. Pabst Blue Ribbon compared to Guinness.
Why? Generic soy sauce has been pasteurized, which means goodbye flavor! The result is a watered-down, sad imitation.
I order my nama shoyu from a fabulous online company called www.naturalzing.com. It's cheap!
Of course you can substitute whatever soy sauce you've got on hand. I do encourage you, though, to get online and order nama shoyu for yourself! Use it wherever you would use soy sauce.
