Fala Me To KALEifornia Cropped.jpg

One of our favorite and most popular recipes is our Fala Me to KALEifornia salad with the option to add falafel. It's a powerhouse, nutrient dense salad loaded with superfoods such as kale, quinoa, sunflower and other sprouts, healthy fats from avocado and tahini and protein rich with garbanzo beans and hummus. It's also very beautiful and garnished with an edible flower.
