    Love it. I blend it into my protein smoothies almost every morning. The trick is to use a banana in the smoothie. It masks a lot of the green taste.

    Caldo verde soup (portuguese), also stewed with beans and bacon or with any cured meat (e.g. Chorico sausage), and with BBQ or chipotle sauce.

    Love kale.

    1 cup of chopped kale gives ~100% daily vitamin C, ~200% daily vitamin A, and ~600% daily vitamin K. That's about as good as it gets.

    You've heard of green tea ice cream? I make kale soft serve ice cream. Well, okay, it's:

    kale
    water or pasteurized liquid egg whites
    ice
    heaping tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
    2 scoops protein (50g)
    3 frozen bananas
    1 handful frozen blueberries
    1 carrot
    fistful of broccoli florets
    nutmeg
    cloves
    cinnamon

    Yes...it is yummy but too expensive. My favorite is vampire killer. It is a great alternative to chips. I just wish that they would find a way to price it more reasonably. $48 a pound is ridiculous.

    Cook kale, red bell peppers, garlic, onion with your favorite spices. Serve with eggs over-easy, or chicken, or fish. It's quite versatile.

    It's a great addition to soups, too.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI buy baby kale at Costco. It comes in a large bag. The leaves a fraction of the size and the taste is much more mild.

    I do a light stir fry with onions and garlic and saute the kale until the leaves are dark and limp.

    DEELISH.


    I buy mine from Costco too. I put it in my protein shakes with the Vita-Mix.

    I just made a simple kale pesto (pre-chopped fresh kale, oil, sour salt, and garlic). It tastes very nice and retains its' crunchy texture without being chewy. Thanks for the idea!

    This was my first year growing it in my garden. I plan to grow twice as much next season.
