Smoked Maldon Sea Salt Challah
Classic challah + egg wash + a generous sprinkling of Maldon smoked sea salt.
That stuff is delicious!!
Maldon Smoked sea salt - it looks like tiny shards of glass.
Once I was searching for smoked sea salt on Amazon I went down this rabbit hole of flavored salts. The San Francisco Salt Co has some incredible salt varieties- here is one.
Cherrywood Smoked Sea Salt
Almond + Kale Dip
4 cups fresh chopped kale, packed
2 tbsp olive oil*
1 cup toasted almonds
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt
Pulse in food processor until on the chunkier side- I prefer it that way- or process until smooth.
*Add up to +2 tbsp olive oil if the mixture looks too dry. Alternatively leave the mixture dry and drizzle the additional olive oil just before serving.
