I discovered (as if it was lost) kale last year, thanks to one of my cousins. We have it at least once a week at our house now. I haven't ventured so far as to do the kale-chip thing, but steamed, I admit it, it really is delicious and a welcome addition to our meal plan.
I have never been a fan of Kale chips but I use it interchangeably with Spinach in my salads. I add the dressing than let it set for 10 or 15 minutes before eating it so the leaves soften a bit. 2831 days ago
It has been unknown to me too - in Sweden it is a typical christmas food and about ten years ago I realised that I think it is really tasty. But I still haven´t bought it a lot, mailny becasue it is not in the stores that much except for round christmas... but this year I have tried to buy it more and found that it is realy expensive, especially compared to other in that "family" like red or white cabbage. The name in swedish conncets these foods kale is "grönkål" cabbage is "vitkål" and red cabbage is "rödkål" - grön, vit och röd meaning green, white and red... and I fry the grönkål (kale) and sprinkle on som sunflowerseed...mmmm! 2834 days ago
Just not a big fan :( We had if often as a kid growing up with ham and potatoes all cooked in one pot. My mom used to put vinegar on hers. I've even tried it later in life and while learning to live healthy. But I just can't find it that exciting. But I think it will always be one of those foods that I will continue to give a try if available at other places than my kitchen, LOL !!!
Looks like we've all been recruited to the new kale religion. I get mine at the farmers' market, & put it in smoothies. Haven't advanced enough to try it as a veg with a meal. But then I always did tend towards being a heathen ... LOL 2835 days ago
Growing up in the South, kale is nothing new to me. I've been eating it (and other greens) for years. It's so cool to see it trendy now...and to realize it's so good for you! 2835 days ago
Um, yeah. My niece dragged me to the alter of Kale (seems to be the popular healthy veggie of the year)... last year. Yep, pretty yums. I too have not done the chips version, but done it steamed, like spinach, or as an adder in salads. A worthy addition to my leafy greens! 2835 days ago
