Kale overload

Friday, August 17, 2012

I had a bunch of kale in the fridge already, and our organic box came today. One came in the box, and I subbed out something for a second bunch. BUT there was a note on the box that said they ran out of local green cabbage, and were giving me kale instead.

Yes, it sounded like a lot of kale -- three bunches plus the one I already had -- but I love kale, so it was OK.

Then I opened the box.

They did not do an even exchange on the cabbage: they included THREE MORE BUNCHES OF KALE.

So, I ended up with SIX total.

What does a girl do with six bunches of kale? Immediately use two to make "cheesy" raw kale chips in the dehydrator, is what.

And then kill the entire batch for a sad and lonely dinner:

    I love smoothies - fruit smoothies. I keep hearing/reading about green smoothies with kale in them but haven't tried one. Are you a smoothie person?

    I think you can add it in some smoothies? Not really sure but I think I was told that or read that somewhere. Ohhh a plate of kale for dinner? I would have had to add something to it... pineapple or grilled chicken breast or both! I like fresh produce though so great to hear how much fresh stuff you guys have to work with emoticon I hope you find some creative ways to use up your kale. (Pinterest always has some quirky suggestions)

    I'm trying soooo hard to do the kale thing. I did a tv piece for a dude who owns a company called Brads Raw Foods, and he gave us a bunch of vegan cheese kale. I'm just not feeling the love... But I'll keep trying. I have a ton of it.

    Hi I love kale but to much of any green at once is not good. I freeze my kale, it freezes well, it does make it a little soft so it will not bee the crispy kale you want for salads, but you could do kale chips or put it in a soup, or saute it

    I love making those cheezy kale chips. My co-workers beg me to make them and my husband says they're like cheez-its!
