All kale, all the time

This Slate article is hilarious. If you’re looking to eat kale (in moderation!), you can find a recipe for baked kale chips here.

What are your favorite kale recipes?

  1. I love kale in just about anything! But my most-often used recipe is just to throw the chopped leaves in a curry about 15 minutes or so before it’s done cooking. So good! Or blanched and then sautéed up with some chili flake, minced garlic and a squeeze of lemon. Yum!

    • That sounds delicious! Any recs on curry recipes? I’m in the market for a good one!

      • I am kind of fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants where curry is concerned. Start with diced onions, carrots, garlic and throw in a good amount of whatever curry paste you like (I use just red curry for the most part). Sauté to bring the spice out. Then add some diced tomatoes, stock, coconut milk and whatever veg you have on hand (zucchini, small diced potatoes, etc). Simmer until tender. Add kale, frozen peas, lots of lime and some cilantro or basil. So good! And a good fridge cleaner too! =)

  2. For some reason, I find that, when sauteed, kale is too bitter for me. Does eating it in chip form change the flavor? I’d really like to try them.

    • I think the kale chips still retain some of the underlying raw flavor, but baking does diminish it a bit, especially if you doctor them up with spices. You could try garlic salt or maybe curry and cumin if you want to mask the flavor a little more!

  3. haha Dad and I ate kale for the last two nights as a salad and put it on homemade pizza last week! It’s growing like a weed in the garden!
