I have to throw the best kale salad recipe out there -
Bag of Kale
3-4 tsp minced fresh garlic
Jar of capers, drained
Jar of julienne cut sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
red wine vinegar
S&P
Rinse the kale and put it in a big pot with a lid. Do not add any more water, just leave the drops left clinging after washing.
Low low heat, covered for 45-50 mins until it is soft and dark green
Remove to a towel-covered counter or cookie sheet - spread the kale out and let it dry
Return to the pot, add garlic, capers, tomatoes WITH their oil, a good splash of RW vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
I sometimes add toasted pine nuts. I top this with protein (usually chicken).
Hands down, this is one of the best kale dishes I have ever had.

I chop up a bunch while some ground beef is cooking with onions and garlic and add by thickness as it cooks. I bought some that was huge and was bothered by paying for the big stems, but they turned out to have a sweet taste. Yummy.

When I came to this country 50 years ago to the central valley of California I could not find any Kale anywhere, nobody had ever heard of it. My Mother used to cook it with sliced spicy Sausage like Kielbasa and that was so good. I don't like burned vegetables ( so called roasted ) would rather have them fresh steamed with butter and herbs and Bacon.

I'm a big fan of kale.

My favorite so far, in a pot I fry up chunks of bacon (uncured/no Nitrates added)
when they are on the light golden side, I add a bag of fresh kale and wilt it down a bit.
They I add some vegtable broth, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Excellent!

Not quite the most nutrient dense food in the planet, but a good one, I love kale

I buy it fresh but I am sure I have seen it frozen, I just don't remember where...

To get more benifit from eating it, cooking it with grass-fed butter or coconut oil is good, some of the beneficial nutrients are fat soluble and do not really absorb in the body unless they are eaten with fat. I like to also top it with some raw slivered almonds, because it is delicious

I buy chopped frozen kale in my grocery store alond with fresh kale and baby kale. The baby kale we use un smoothies. The fresh kale we remove from the stems and chop, add to whatever veggie dish I am cooking. Right now I am making a big pot of veggies soup/ stew, thre in some frozen veggies, using up fresh veggies, some dried veggies, and some canned veggies along with a couple cans of beans. It will last us a week. The weather has been so unpredictable. First it's cold then it warms up. Today it is cold again. I like to get my greens every day.

We also buy frozen collards greens and spinach. We get the other greens fresh. Dr furhman's books have lots of recipes for greens.

I was just wondering...I am a big vitamin taker. Does her book tell you how to keep healthy even if you don't have an ailment, ie: like MS?

I put about 10g of butter in a shallow pan, add as much chopped kale as possible, and saute a bit. Then add water and cover, let cook on low/med heat for 5-8 min. Take cover off, let water evaporate. Spill onto plate and season with hot sauce. Yum!

I eat it steamed, or raw or toasted with olive oil, feta, lemon, and pine nuts. Anchovys are good too.

anything! I also like to do creamed kale. same way you'd do spinach.

kale does have addictive properties for me that I interpret as carb cravings though. Once I start snacking on some I can eat an entire bag... ends up being kind carby at that point.

Same deal with peanuts...

I am brand new to this low carb thing - haven't even started the diet change yet but I was reading thru this thread and wanted to comment. I had this "salad" from Whole Foods. It's Kale/Tahini/Garlic/lemon juice. so good!
and Whole Foods has chopped Kale in the frozen food section I've bought it there.

That salad sounds great, X. I often just toss kale into my soups.
I will sometimes get it marked down half price at my food coop, a real deal.

I also like munching it right out of the garden.

Yes, an old thread, but after my own heart! I wasn't fond of kale at the beginning, but began juicing it with other veggies because I knew it was good for me. Now I like to saute' it with mushrooms and add it to my scrambled eggs or omelets. We are growing organic, non-GMO kale in one of our gardens, and dh will just go outside and bring me a fresh bunch whenever I need it. Yum!
