A delicious and nourishing macrobiotic inspired bowl by Marquis Matson of Real Raw Kitchen for those of us that prefer to keep it raw! Fresh veggies of kale, carrot, zucchini, sunflower sprouts, and green onion combine with cherry tomatoes, cultured sauerkraut, and a creamy tahini-miso dressing flavored with a punch of garlic and basil. Top with the optional avocado half and enjoy!


For the salad:

1 head of kale
1 large carrot
1 large zucchini
1/2 cup raw sauerkraut
handful of sunflower sprouts
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
2-3 green onions
handful dried seaweed
1/2 lemon (for the kale)

For the dressing:

1 tablespoon raw tahini
1 tablespoon raw miso paste
1 clove garlic
handful fresh basil
2-3 tablespoons of water


For the salad:

1) First, peel the zucchini and run through a spiralizer. Then let the noodles sit on some paper towels while you prepare the rest. It is best at room temperature so it releases the most water. I leave it on the countertop, covered with more paper towels.

2) Take the dried seaweed and put them in water to soak and re-hydrate. After it has soaked for 15-20 minutes, rinse with a colander to remove any particles and extra fishy taste.

3) Next, wash and de-stem the kale. Pat dry or run through a salad spinner (a new gadget I got for Christmas!). Tear into bit sized pieces.

4) Squeeze the 1/2 lemon over the top and massage with your hands until the kale shrinks. Set aside.

5) Peel the carrot and run through the spiralizer.

6) Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.

7) Combine everything in a bowl.

For the dressing:

1) Mix everything in a mini chopper. Pour over the salad.

My name is Marquis. I'm a 20-something young professional making my way up in this world. I'm mostly silly, extremely ambitious, and a Scorpio, which means I'm incredibly passionate about everything. I am in love with the raw food movement but I'm the first to say that I do not eat 100% raw all the time. Some days I do but most days it's about 80%. Some days, still, it's even less. And I believe that's okay!! I have create Real Raw Kitchen at the urging of my friends to help spread the raw food love. This is my hobby, my passion, and my creative outlet. My goal with this website is to show everyone how easy, delicious, and accessible a raw food diet is.
