Kale Salad with Beet Ribbons

Vegan Kale and Beet Salad || the domesticated wolf

These beet ribbons have been making many appearances on my Instagram feed as of late … and for good reason! They’re delish.

I like to make a big batch and have them on hand all week. The tofu and beets require no cooking, so this is one very quick meal once everything is ready to go.
