Kale is by far one of my favorite vegetables. It grows year round in Michigan, thanks to hoophouse technology, is easy to cook, easy to grow, tastes delicious, and is incredibly nutritious. Did I mention how good kale tastes?
I know you love cherry tomatoes my faithful blog readers and market shoppers, and I must admit something. I do not. I’d take kale over cherry tomatoes any day. (Although I strongly encourage you to keep eating cherry tomatoes from The Farm…perhaps mixed with kale?).
Furthermore, Kale represents well during breakfast, lunch, and supper, and can be sautéed, boiled, steamed, thrown in soup, baked, and on and on. Speaking of baking kale, there has been a lot of chatter around our farmers market lately regarding kale chips. Every week I seem to have multiple conversations about one of my favorite foods cooked in one of my favorite ways.
I have serious salty snack cravings, especially at the gas station, and I must say that kale chips do fulfill my salty snack cravings in a healthy form. If only there was a vegetable with similar qualities as chocolate chip cookies.
Here’s a couple of recipes to check out.
