Which recipes do u recommend?
There r so many to choose from on chowhound-
Get a pan SCREAMING hot. Add a little fat (rendered ribeye fat is amazing for this, duck fat is really good etc) and then throw the kale into the sautee pan. Its gonna hiss and spatter a lot, just toss it in the fat pretty quickly, put it on a paper towel and salt it.
The simplest preperations are the best for kale IMHO.
Just made kale salad w pickled radishes and buttermilk dressing - this may be more involved than you are interested in making, but once the dressing and the pickles are made, they keep in the fridge for a while -
Lightly pickle some radishes and/or carrots - these are great to keep in the fridge for snacking - pickle - bring to a low boil - mixture of apple cider vinegar and rice vinegar - add, fennel seeds, coriander, garlic cloves, little salt and sugar - add the veg when boiling cook for five minutes, turn off and drain when the veggies are still crunchy but slightly cooked - cool and chop, or quarter or whatever shape you like
dressing - 1:3 mayo: buttermilk - add lots of fresh pepper, salt and lemon juice, shake or stir
chop raw kale ( I have also had this with left over sauteed kale) -
Toss all together - It's great - also had it without the pickle and added chopped celery (it's all I had).
