kale again

helenh(z6 SW MO)May 1, 2014

How do you make it taste good? Also people make kale smoothies. Do they taste like kale? Do any of you make them? At a meeting we had a cardiac rehab nurse as a speaker and I am changing my ways. So far it has been one day without much sugar or butter. I have poke popping up and I always have at least one poke serving but that takes bacon. I eat my lettuce with olive oil and vinegar, garlic and salt. I may slip some kale in and see how that tastes. I keep planting radishes but it is too dry and so far they haven't done much. I have lots and lots of leaf lettuce and onions.

Not one of my favorite veggies. I've tried cooking it in chicken broth when making soup and have tried it in salads and can tolerate it if there isn't too much. It's so good for you so I can see why you're wanting to find a way to add it to your diet.
I use Allrecipes' website quite a bit and have gotten some good recipes there. I haven't tried any kale recipes from that site but this is what comes up when you search for kale and then sort by popularity. I always read a few comments to see what others have done to adjust the recipe. Let me know if you try any of these that turn out good.

Here is a link that might be useful: Allrecipes - Kale
