Erewhon Kale + White Bean Salad

Erewhon Market is a natural foods grocery and gourmet eatery in Los Angeles that has a cult following and a draws a celebrity crowd. If you don’t live in LA (like us!) you may have never had the chance to check it out.

One of the dishes they are famous for is the Kale + White Bean Salad - full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, not to mention it's packed with plant-based protein and fiber. This recipe is our attempt to bring a healthy taste of Erwhon to you! Trust us… it is truly delicious. 

The dressing is a classic vinaigrette, sweetened with maple syrup, and is the perfect compliment to the dark leafy kale greens, creamy white beans and avocado. The toasted seeds are generously sprinkled on top and lend a crunchy, nutty component to a super satisfying salad. It’s been on our regular rotation lately!

Tuesday Foods Pro Tip:

Massage the kale!

Kale is quite tough and fibrous and can be difficult to chew compared to other greens like lettuce or spinach. By massaging it for as little as 2 minutes with a little oil and/or lemon juice and a dash of salt - it becomes tenderized, making it easier to chew and digest.



  • 6 cups curly kale, washed, de-stemmed and chopped small

  • 1 can white beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 ripe avocado, diced

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, unsalted and toasted

  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds, unsalted and toasted

  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts

  • 1 tsp sea salt

Maple Dijon Dressing

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (this is the juice of about 1-2 lemons)

  • 1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup

  • 2 Teaspoons dijon mustard

  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed

  • sea salt & black pepper to taste


  1. Massage The Kale while you are washing it. We like to wash ours under warm water - surprisingly, this makes it come alive! Drain and place kale into a mixing bowl with a tiny bit of olive oil, lemon and a sprinkle of salt. Set aside while you make the dressing.

  2. In a large serving bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until emulsified.

  3. Add the kale, white beans, and avocado. Toss in the dressing.

  4. Top with the toasted seeds and hemp hearts and serve.
