Recently, I’ve stopped putting all of my disposable income towards shoes and reallocated some of my funds to the little slice of heaven that is Whole Foods. I know, I’m really late to this party. Like so many others I love it so much, I willingly fork over $100 a week in exchange for the freshest produce, meat, fish, and other organic snacks. I mean, $8.99 for almond butter is completely reasonable – (FML) – invest in your health, people.
One thing that is especially amazing at WF is their seafood – particularly scallops. I cannot get enough. Read on for my dinner de jour.
1/2lb fresh scallops
Handful of kale
1 TBS Extra virgin olive oil
Sear scallops in a skillet or grill pan for 3-6 minutes per side, depending on size. When the outsides get white it’s time to turn. When done squeeze a little fresh lemon juice and get ready for culinary perfection.
Rinse kale thoroughly. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and massage by hand until the kale is soft and saturated. Yes, get your hands a little messy for this one, by doing so the kale will get super tender and absorb the EVOO/avocado dressing. It’s delish.
Plate, throw in some sliced tomatoes (or other crisp veg), pour yourself a glass of water (read: sauvignon blanc) and toast to yourself, you’re basically a gourmet chef now.
