If you're looking for a kōan or sutra that explains “Green Goddess Buddha,” you can stop now. Put away the theology books and open up the cookbooks, because nirvana is just a bite away with this healthy and, aha, green bowl. Kale, apple, and cucumber mix with a delightful green goddess sauce you'll make yourself. Add cashews for a soft salty hit, and farro for your grain, and you've got yourself your own moment of zen. Not so much an “om,” but most definitely “yum.”

Before You Cook

    Cook the Farro

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem kale and coarsely chop. Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into ½" dice. Trim cucumber, quarter lengthwise, and cut into ¼" pieces. In a mixing bowl, make green goddess dressing by combining sour cream, pesto, and ¼ tsp. salt.

  • 3

    Toast the Cashews

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add cashews to hot, dry pan and cook until lightly toasted, 3-5 minutes. Immediately remove cashews to a plate to prevent burning. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Cook the Kale

    Return pan used to toast cashews to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Add kale and stir occasionally until wilted, 3-4 minutes. Stir in peas and cook until peas are warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and season with ¼ tsp. salt and pepper.
