Fall in Love with Kamut
Fall is finally here and we are celebrating with all our favorite fall things, including this hardy Kamut salad. We are all about embracing the food that is seasonally available and right now that means squash and kale. Squash and kale stick around when the bounty of summer fades away. This Raisin-Hazelnut Kamut Salad is a great way to incorporate yellow squash and kale into your meal.
Raisin-Hazelnut Kamut Salad with Yellow Squash & Kale
via The Martha and Marley Spoon Test Kitchen
* Use organic, non-GMO ingredients whenever possible.
- 2 ounces blanched (skinless) hazelnuts
- 1 cup Kamut berries
- ¼ cup organic golden raisins
- 3 scallions
- 2 ounces feta
- 2 tablespoon organic rice vinegar
- 10 ounces yellow squash
- 5 ounces curly kale (stems removed)
- pinch of coarse salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- organic olive oil
Prepare Kamut berries by soaking overnight, following these instructions.
Preheat the oven to 400F, and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Spread hazelnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until toasted and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let cool touch, then roughly chop.
Switch oven to broil. Add Kamut to boiling water and cook until tender, about 40 minutes. Drain and toss with raisins while still hot. Set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
Trim and thinly slice scallions. Crumble feta. Trim ends of squash and slice in ½-1 inch rounds. Remove kale leaves from stems and tare or chop into bite size pieces.
Coat a rimmed baking sheet with ½ tablespoon olive oil. Toss squash, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl. Place coated squash on cookie sheet, make sure they do not overlap. Broil until softened and charred in spot, 6-8 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk rice vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add Kamut and raisin mixture, chopped hazelnuts, scallions, and feta. Toss to combine. Divide Kamut salad between two bowls and top with squash and crispy kale.
