“One thing I have come to like in kale is its texture that stands stir-frying unlike other greens.”
“Crisp and fluffy greens are like eating springtime itself, root veggies practically glow in the fall, kale is like candy in December, and those fresh tomatoes … mmm.”
“Saute some chopped onions and garlic in olive oil, then add washed and chopped greens (a mixture of spinach and some bitter green, like dandelion or kale, is great; just spinach is fine too).”
“But any delicious preparation of kale is of interest to me.”
“Besides tasting good, Lacinato kale is good for you.”
“Add tofu and cover, allow to cook another 5 minutes, or until kale is the texture you like (I like mine a little overcooked).”
“- Once the lentils are cooked and the potatoes are done, stir the kale into the lentils, cover and allow to cook until the kale is wilted.”
“Here, the kale is not overwhelmed by other flavors, as sometimes happens with more tomato or sausage dominated kale soups.”
“With fresh, organic black kale from the farmers 'market and lovely plump chickpeas, it is immediately a staple.”
