Kale is a superfood.
Here are my 3 tips re: Kale:
1. It lasts many days (a week+) in the fridge, unlike many other greens (like spinach), which is great.
2. The biggest pain about kale is cleaning it. I rip the pieces of the stem, put the pieces in a bowl full of water, then pick up handfulls and put it in a strainer so that all the dirt is remaining in the water. Repeat until water is clean.
3. Very important: once you put kale in the saute pan, cover it and let it steam for at least 5 minutes. This gets rid of some of the bitterness.
(NOTE: there are sauteed onions, red bell peppers and chickpeas underneath all that kale).
This recipe from FatFree Vegan called for blending soaked cashews with water, garlic and bullion to make a sauce. That’s the white specks that you see in the picture below. It adds a different, creamy but light flavor.
This is a side dish by itself, or an entree if you eat 1/2 of it on top of a hearty grain like rice or quinoa.
