what to do with kale?
I'm just back from the farmers market and bought a bunch of kale because it was so pretty and only 75 cents. Have never bought kale before and have no idea what to do with it. Please help. Thanks.
Kale chips. spritz with olive oil. Add spice blend of your choice (I like cayenne and salt) and roast until crispy on a baking sheet. YOu gotta eat it all in one day though otherwise it gets gross.
Or just saute in garlic and olive oil and pancetta (or some other bacon like meat) and have with pasta and grated cheese.
Mixed into eggs (as a scramble, omelet or frittata)
As filling for dumplings (either Italian ravioli or Chinese dumplings).
Chopped salad (toss with some balsamic vinegar, EVOO, sugar or honey, salt, minced garlic and chili pepper flakes)
Sauteed with some liver and bacon fat.
Possibilities are endless. My only reservation in using kale is with soups. Just not my cup of tea.
First I slice up some turkey sausage into disks and brown. Remove from pan. Add carrots,celery, and onion. Sauté that, then add garlic. Add sausage back to pan, add tomatoes, white beans, chicken stock (or v8) red pepper, and kale. My 11 year old eats this like it's his job. Or I make this soup, also delicious. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
