i don't like to force my kale beliefs, or food beliefs for that matter, on folks. i just mention kale a lot, so people mention it back!
here are some of my favorite kale recipes as of late:
yin & yang salad with peanut-sesame dressing.
a friend brought the true recipe to a potluck and i about died and then made out with the salad! i generally mix whatever greens i have (kale & lettuce here), with carrots, turnips, and green onions. and toss with the fabulous peanut-sesame dressing. (peanut butter, maple syrup, ginger, cilantro, and sesame oil make for some magic. i can safely say i'm OBSESSED with this dressing.) i marinate the tofu, but i haven't baked it yet. i'm impatient, and it's hot out, so why use the oven for a salad.
this is eating is an art's massaged kale salad with apple, radish, avocado, and toasted sunflower seeds.
i make it as the recipe states. the salted-massaged dinosaur kale really creates a nice flavor and adds a lovely texture to the kale. the simple dressing of honey, lemon juice and fresh ginger could not be a better topping for this medley.
in my yard i have curly kale and dinosaur kale growing. the growth has been stunted a bit due to the full on summer heat. and i believe it's chipmunks that have been dining on the dinosaur kale. d'oh! rabbits also love kale.
i've made A LOT of recipes using kale over the months including lasagna, kale chips, a few soups, stir fries, salads, wraps, etc. i can pretty much add it to most dishes as a kicker.
if you have any knock 'em dead kale recipes, send them my way!
