For the Zucchini:

  • 4 medium-size zucchini washed and peeled like fettuccini noodles
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch 4-5 leaves kale, washed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 small yellow pepper seeded and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 scallions chopped (both white and green parts)
  • Handful of walnuts
  • 2 tablespoon hemp seeds optional

For the dressing

  • 2 tablespoons vegan mayo
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch of black pepper


  • Place the zucchini ribbons into a colander, add salt and let it drain for 15 minutes.
  • In a large pot put some water and, using a steam basket, steam the kale for 5 minutes. Take it out and let it cool. Once cooled, chop it into small pieces.
