Inspired by this recipe at Serious Eats, I found myself drinking my favorite breakfast of the week. Using the juice of 1/2 of one extremely juicy lemon, lemon and freshly ground black pepper were the dominant flavors. Hints of fresh veggies were a lovely background note.
1 cup tomato juice
(Here, I used Spicy V8. Next time, I’ll be using fresh tomatoes.)
2 cups kale, well-washed and roughly cut
juice of 1/2 lemon
splash soy sauce
pinch freshly ground black pepper
Combine all in a powerful blender, liquify until smooth. You’ll know the kale is liquified when the liquid turns a dark vivid green.
P.S. Still celebrating the new year? This is even better than a Bloody Mary, if you’re looking for an adult beverage. Just add your favorite vodka.
