I have an addiction to kale.

Especially kale lightly sauteed with sliced almonds and organic dried cranberries, with just a drop of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt.

I eat it every day.

Sometimes twice a day.

Always with brown rice.

Can one eat too much kale?

Kale has calcium, vitamin D, and lots of other good stuff.  How could anyone eat too much good stuff?

I worry every day that today will be THE day that I grow sick of eating kale.

What would replace it?

It’s irreplaceable.

I guess it’s better to have an addiction to kale than to alot of other things.

Best of everything,

    I am fiercely devoted to brussels sprouts or broccolini lightly sauteed with walnuts and a squeeze of lemon…maybe for a kale break?

    For me, it’s all about cauliflower: roasted with walnuts, parsley and a drop of anchovy paste, or with chick peas and Indian spices. Just typing the words has me thinking of the refrigerator! But Barbara, your kale sounds pretty good. I’m going to try it this week.

  3. Laura and Terri: I LOVE both of these recipes, and will try them. Today, while on “Sirius Doctor Radio” a listener emailed a terrific recipe for kale: add a little olive oil and sea salt, place in oven at 250 degrees, and bake until crisp! Doing this today , . . .

    Kale is also my favorite green veggie! I brown a few sliced shallots in a little olive oil, add a bunch of kale (rough chopped) with a handful of pine nuts and a heaping tablespoon of sundried tomato pesto and stir fry until kale is tender crisp (about 12 to 15 minutes. My non-green man loves them ~ and that is really saying something.

    Ok….I just got home, spent a few minutes catching up on email and read this post. Yikes! I ran to the market, bought a bunch of kale, sauteed it in avocado lime oil, sea salt, fresh ground pepper…You are all amazing! Loving my lunch! The kale is delicious! Simple and perfect!
    Thanks for the gourmet tip, girls!

    Thanks for that! My mum recently harvested a garden full of tomatoes , and I find myself the proud owner of two or three buckets worth! Of course I couldnt eat them all, but I did find a website full of lots more tomato recipe at this site. A website dedicated the topic!! Crazy what you can find on the internetz these days!!

  7. Kale lover says:

    Two bunches of freshly washed kale
    strip leaves off stalk

    Steam in one cup of water. Drain kale in a strainer. Add the following to the pot you cooked it in (save on dishes!)

    1-TBL Brown rice vinegar
    1-TBL Soy sauce (or tamari)
    1-tsp Toasted sesame oil

    these proportions are not set in stone. Use more sesame oil and less of the others if trying to reduce salt.

    Swirl around in pan to mix, then add cooked kale and toss.
