You may have heard a lot about kale and how good it is for you. I certainly have. I’ve tried kale but have not been able to find a good way to eat it. A little in a salad of greens is okay, but I can’t eat a bunch of it at a time. I’ve also tried frying the big stalks in oil and eating it with a little salt. That is a messy ordeal.
Today I read an article at the Wizzley site with some delicious kale recipes. The one that caught my eye was to bake kale leaves in the oven. I imagine the finished product comes out similar to the fried kale.
I have found the best way to bake kale with the least amount of trouble. You see, many “recipes” for kale chips ask the baker to do ridiculous things, like totally dry the kale, and rub oil onto each piece! Read my Baked Kale Chips Recipe Myths page to see how simple it can be to create this healthy snack.
Her other recipe comes from her blog and it is Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Soup with kale. Although I seldom follow a recipe when I make soup, I’ll have to try to remember to have kale handy the next time I make soup. Also, I’ve never eaten chicken sausage. I am not a big meat-eater, but I imagine it would add good flavor.
Do you have an easy and delicious kale recipe to share? Leave it in the comments if you’d like.
Want to grow your own kale? Like lettuce, kale likes cool weather, so plant kale in early Spring or Fall.
Check out the growing advice on the Cornell University site and plant some of this healthy, green leafy vegetable.
