What in the heck do you do with Kale?
It is so dang nutritious it’s basically a rocking green vitamin. I love to throw mine in smoothies using my Vitamix blender. I love chopping it up and tossing it in with home fries as a seasoning. I also mix it into casseroles and meatloaf. It is a wonderful cooking green. If you puree it you have all natural food coloring (think St. Patty’s Day)!
My Recipe for Braised Garlic Greens:
6 Cups chopped Kale
3 cloves minced Garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 Tbl. oil
1/4 C. walnuts (coarsely chopped)
Throw it all in a pan and stir fry until the Kale turns a nice bright green and softens a bit. Serve as a side dish. Yummy! Makes four servings.
While searching the web I found another blogger, Diana, who shares my affinity for kale. She is a cancer survivor and she has tons of recipes and tips for incorporating kale into your everyday meals. Yes, I recommend eating kale EVERY DAY!

Have a great Easter weekend and while you’re at it eat some kale. 😉
