Kale The Super Food
Bake the Whole Bunch:
Kale chips may not look like regular chips, but even the pickiest eaters agree, they’re totally snack-worthy. Just place on a baking sheet along with a little olive oil and spices of your choice and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Make a Simple Saute:
A little oil, salt and pepper are all it takes to create a super food side dish. Add variety with garlic, lemon juice and vinegar.
Serve as a Salad Green:
But first, massage kale leaves to break down tough tissues. This is as simple as it sounds; with ribs removed, rub kale with your hands. In minutes you’ll notice darker, smoother leaves, a sigh that the tissues and bitter flavor are tamed.
Toss a handful of finely chopped kale leaves into a smoothie or add kale to your morning omelet.
Use in Soups Stews or Casseroles:
Since it retains its texture during cooking, kale makes a hearty addition to baked or slow cooked meals.
