Minnesota Transplant is on trend!
Kale is growing profusely in my garden, and I’ve been eating it at every opportunity this summer. It turns out kale is one of the world’s healthiest foods (whfoods.com), high in vitamins K, A and C and a bunch of other nutrients. It’s high in fiber and even has protein!
I thought kale had to be sautéed to be edible, but it turns out to make a hearty salad. I like a kale salad dressed with lemon and olive oil and topped with soft-cooked eggs. Substitute kale in any salad that calls for spinach.
Last night, I served a tortellini-zucchini medley over a bed of fresh kale (and I ate the leftovers at lunch today).
I don’t recommend using kale in your smoothies, however. I tried that, too. Yuck.
All hail, kale!
