Avocado Oil is A MUST

Who oil? 

Avocado oil, Indeed!

While most oils either (1) become toxic when heated (ex: olive oil and coconut oil) or (2) do not digest well when combined with starchy vegetables or grains (ex: grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil, sesame seed oil, and other bean or vegetable oils).

Hence, what is a divine being to do when wanting to pan fry a delectable potato??

Use Avocado Oil! 

Celebrate this revelation like a giddy little child, because it’s BIG! Of course adding a few slices of avocado on top helps too. :-)

 3 tbsp fresh garlic (or elephant garlic), minced
 ¼ cup Onion (fresh or frozen), chopped

Prepare Potatoes (Light Steam)
1

Get your steamer pot ready by pouring in the 2 cups of filtered water and turning on the heat to medium or medium/high. You want to bring the water to a boil. In the meantime, prepare your potatoes in the next step.

2

Wash your potatoes and slice into small pieces no bigger than your thumb. I'm using baby potatoes, so I just ended up slicing them in half long-ways (easy-peasy). When the water has come to a boil, add the sliced potatoes to the steamer portion of the pot to steam for 5 minutes (set a timer and turn off the stove heat when the 5 minutes is up). In the meantime, make your Ethiopian Spice Blend in the next step.

Make Your Ethiopian Spice Blend
3

Grab a small jar, bowl, or Tupperware container. Add in all the Ethiopian Spice Blend Ingredients, and mix it with a spoon. Don't worry, you won't end up using all of this now (yes, you can save some for later if you want).

Make Your Spiced Curry Potatoes
4

Grab a large pan (preferably non-stick) and pre-heat it on the stove at Medium-High heat. In the meantime, chop your onion and garlic (or add them to a food processor to save even more time).

5

Add the avocado oil to the pan and swirl the pan around to "evenly" coat the bottom with oil. Toss in the lightly steamed potatoes, garlic, onion, agave, salt, and about HALF of your Ethiopian Spice Blend. Mix it around and allow the potatoes to brown on both sides. This won't take long since you preheated the pan.

Make Your Kale Salad
6

Wash and chop (or tear) the kale into small enough pieces to fit on your fork to prepare the bed of "greens" for the bowl. Add the kale into a large mixing bowl.

7

Mix the coconut liquid aminos, Vegenaise, vinegar, and your Ethiopian Spice Blend together to make your dressing. Set half aside for the dressing to use the next time you make a salad (store in the fridge).

8

Pour the other half of the dressing onto the kale greens. Massage the kale with your hands (literally), gently coating all of the kale with the dressing.

Your Perfect Portion
9

Reach in and grab a big handful of salad. This is your perfect portion size (50% of your plate). Add on top your curried potatoes (about the size of the palm of your hand). feel free to add additional toppings like tomato, green onion (or chives), capers, avocado, mushrooms, other non-starchy veggies (from the free Kemetic EIO Nutritional Guide) or even drizzle a little more dressing on top. BAM you have a well-balanced, meal that loves your taste buds as much as your digestive system loves it.
