Kale has become one of our absolute favorite vegetables over the years! And rightly so with a combination of lots of flavor and high nutrient content. First we will talk a little bit about kale and how it is grown. Then onto the recipes.
Kale is another vegetable from the brassica family, along with radishes and arugula. Spring and fall are full of brassicas as they prefer cooler weather. Kale is packed full of minerals and vitamins making it increasingly in demand over the last several years. It is high in vitamins A, C, and K as well as calcium and iron. These nutrients make kale great for heart health, diabetes prevention, and lowering cholesterol levels.
Kale is one of the most versatile leafy greens to cook with and enjoy! Like other leafy greens, it blends well into smoothies with citrus to cut the bitterness. It also steps up the nutrient factor of salads and cooks well with eggs. And of course, kale chips are our favorite way to eat kale. Kale chips are easy to make and also make a great pizza topping!
