All Hail Kale!

Kale Creation

Ah, the mighty kale…  Chock full of vitamins (A, C and K to name a few) and minerals, it’s one of those dark leafy greens we once thought looked better in a bouquet than on our plates.  Deb from the Smitten Kitchen got it right when she said “the world would be a better place if we could all stop pretending that kale tastes good.”  Yup, that’s pretty much how we felt until we did our cleanse last spring and ate kale every which way (in a juice, as a smoothie, raw, steamed, baked and sautéed!)

Now, we’re looking forward to kale being in season…  and can’t wait for the local farmers’ markets to be selling this autumn staple.  While kale salads do feature prominently in our menus, cooler fall temps allow us to cook up some warmer fare.  Here are some of our favorite recipes…  even the boys love the chips and mac-and-cheese!
