Ayurveda explains that certain foods affect the qualities of the mind in different ways. This recipe uses a balance of the six tastes - sweet, sour, salty, pungent, astringent and bitter – to create a simple and satiating meal, body and mind.

For the Ginger Miso Tahini Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 2-inches fresh ginger, skin removed
  • 2 cloves garlic (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup water

For the Salad Bowl:

  • 6 leaves kale, washed and torn
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small sweet potato, cubed and roasted
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon gomashio (a seaweed/sea salt/sesame blend)


For the Ginger Miso Tahini Dressing:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, blend until creamy.
  2. Pour into an airtight container to store. Stores up to 5 days in your fridge. Makes 2 cups.

For Your Salad Bowl:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash and cut sweet potato into 1-inch cubes, toss in olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Place on a baking sheet and roast at 375°F.
  3. While roasting, prepare kale by washing well, removing stems and tearing leaves into small pieces. Place in a bowl and pour 1 tablespoon olive oil on top.
  4. Use your hands to massage oil into the kale leaves, making them soft and tender. If you prefer cooked kale over raw, lightly blanch the leaves in a pot of boiling water before massaging.
  5. Check the sweet potato, stir to avoid sticking or burning on the pan. Once tender, remove from oven.
  6. To serve, scoop 1/2 cup of warm cooked brown rice on top of the massaged kale. Top with roasted sweet potato, a healthy heaping of the tahini dressing, and a big sprinkle of the gomashio.


Note: Garlic and onions are not a part of a traditional sattvic diet, if you have too much heat (pitta) in the body or find your mind is easily aggravated by these ingredients, please exclude the garlic from the tahini dressing.
