Kale Recipe Roundup



KALE!

Do you love it or hate it? I feel like people have extreme feelings about this vegetable. Adam jokes that he shares Jim Gaffigan's views on kale, but the truth is he really does like it. I think loving kale is all about proper preparation. Let's be honest, most people who took a big bite out of a raw kale leaf would probably gag a little. But I would probably have the same reaction to a bite of raw brussel sprout, but I love brussel spouts!


Here are my tips for learning to love kale:

1. Chop it up into really small pieces. (this helps with the texture thing!)
2. Massage it with olive oil to soften and reduce bitterness
3. Serve it (finely chopped) in salads with a flavorful dressing and crunchy, sweet, and savory elements.
4. Combine it with other starchy foods like pasta, rice or potatoes.
5. Add it to soups. It holds its shape much better than spinach!

Today I'm sharing all the kale recipes from the blog, and at the bottom you'll find a long list of my favorite kale recipes from other bloggers.

  1. I'm lukewarm on kale I think - haha. I like it, but I don't love it. I do like it chopped up and put into soups, etc. These recipes all look tasty!
