How to prepare kale??

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I bought a large bag of kale for the soup I made on monday and will use it as a substitute for spinach in tonite's recipe.

However I still have a fair amount left. Looking through my vast supply of cookbooks I couldn't find any cooking ideas other that what was on the package.

If anyone eat this and has some serving suggestions that would be great.

We like to saute it with some garlic until wilted and then put balsamic vinegar on it.

I LOVE kale! I usually put some olive oil in a pan and sautée some onions and garlic then add the kale and let it wilt for about 5 minutes. Then I add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of stock (what ever kind you want to use) and let is cook that way for about another 10 minutes.

Thanks for the info!! I might give it a try for lunch before trying it for Neil (he's kind of fussy on some veggies!!)

I agree, shred and saute with whatever you fancy really!

I steam it; I love kale.

I'm not sure it's a very substitute for spinach, though, the flavor is completely different. And the texture is different; kale is a lot tougher than spinach. I hope it works out.
