Yay! The first of the garlic. A recipe from seriouseats.com.
There are a million kale salad recipes out there, and no doubt you’ve already got a few favorites. I like this one with its Middle Eastern touch of sumac. You can buy sumac at Sevananda or any store that carries Middle Eastern groceries. It has a nice tartness and pretty red color. Substitute another spice, like Spanish paprika, or herb, like thyme, if you don’t have any on hand and don’t want to find it. But the nice thing about buying spices and herbs at places like Sevananda is that you can literally buy just a teaspoon and try it out – no huge investment in a jar that will sit in your pantry for years.
This method of tempering onions is a great one to have in your repertoire. Cuts the bite but leaves you the crunch and the flavor.
I’ll be making this recipe adapted from one on seriouseats.com because I have some red curry paste leftover from testing recipes and am delighted to have yet another use for it. Not to mention, what’s not to love about a slow cooker recipe? Easy, and dinner is done while you’re off doing other things. You could use the Swiss chard or the bok choy if you have another plan for your kale, and vary the other vegetables by what you have on hand.
From Women’s Health magazine. This recipe is for one serving, scale up according to how many folks you’re planning to feed.
Were you excited to see kale in your box? I’m ready for this dish that combines kale with butternut squash and pasta. Just says “comfort food” to me. No shallot? Leave it out or substitute some onion or garlic. The pasta cooks in the same skillet – easy cleanup.
A recipe from Women’s Health magazine. It’s just one idea – use the fruits and herbs you prefer. I’m just behind the times and haven’t thought about a kale smoothie – maybe you’ve been making them for years!
Made this recipe last week. Yum. It’s from Battersby restaurant in Brooklyn. It uses kale two ways – crisped and raw. Pea tendrils are available at local farmers markets when in season.
A great make-ahead dish from the pages of Southern Living. Use your collards, or your kale, or your beet greens, or a combination of all three. Make up a big batch of greens and then reserve some for this dish.
I’m a new convert to nutritional yeast. It’s great in pestos as a substitute for Parmesan, and here it lends its’ “cheesy” flavor to kale chips. This is adapted from a recipe from Whole Foods.
