Kale is a great option in both salads or as a cooked green side dish. The options are limitless, they are even good for making chips.
For those of you not familiar with kale chips – welcome to vegan nirvana. Raw foodists, vegans, health nuts, or those in “the green know” chow down happily on a handful of fresh kale chips as a green, nutritious alternative to conventional potato chips. They are not fried or baked; free from all of the carcinogens, additives and preservatives that plague most shriveled potato chip packets; and most importantly, they are absolutely scrumptious.
Kale, quinoa, red capsicum, cucumber, red onion, feta cheese and avocado are served with a homemade Dijon mustard and lemon vinaigrette in this brilliant salad. Steaming the kale removes some of the bitterness and the salad dressing ties all the flavours together beautifully.
A delicious, satisfying, low-calorie dish of broccoli, kale and sun dried tomatoes that's great with any meal.
For vegetables that are high in anti-oxidants and fibre, you can't beat butternut pumpkin and leafy kale.
Either Andouille or chorizo sausage work well in this flavour-packed Italian soup. Perfect as a winter warming dinner when served with some warm crusty bread.
