  1. Bring the brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium-low, place a cover on the saucepan, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes. Spread the rice onto a large platter and chill in refrigerator until cooled completely.
  2. Gently toss the cooled rice, diced tofu, tamari almonds, sesame seeds, chopped kale, red cabbage, shredded carrot, chopped flat-leaf parsley, and chopped dill together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk the lemon juice, tamari soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, and mustard together in a small bowl; season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Drizzle the dressing over the rice mixture; toss gently to coat evenly.

This recipe was definitely colorful and a nice change from the usual. I did omit the tofu and almonds and used dried dill and parsley instead of fresh (all to save some $). I also don't like kale or cabbage completely raw so I steamed each until just slightly softened. The dressing was a little salty from the soy sauce, but otherwise pretty good. Next time I might reduce the soy sauce and add some honey.


I made this recipe for a party and left with an empty bowl and yummy compliments. I used black sesame seeds and a bit of fresh lime juice because I didn't have enough fresh lemon juice. Everyone loved the tamari almonds and finely cubed tofu! I used Russian kale, which has a relatively soft, flat leaf. I will make this salad again. Sorry no photo . . . empty bowl!


The best kale salad everrrrrr. Didn't use tofu and added a bit of extra olive oil in the dressing. The fresh herbs really do make a difference and the dill especially makes it really special. Have had lots of requests for this recipe and it will certainly be a regular from now on.
