A Valentine To Kale

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, an adorable ode to everyone’s favorite superfood. (Click it to see it nice and big.)

Writer/illustrator Anne Emond offers this and other funny adorableness on her comics blog and her personal site.

Should you find yourself with a bunch of kale, consider the following recipes – presented with love from me to you – to move your kale from the fridge to your belly:

Kale: simple & garlicky
Kale: creamy & spicy
EZ Sauteed kale – also includes a 101 on why kale is SO good for you

(Dino-chow eaters: Anne’s recipe ideas above are also excellent except for the miso. If you’re into dino-chow, use chicken, beef, or veggie broth instead.)

    Yay, kale! I also saute kale with garlic and a little vinegar, and then poach eggs on top of it with the steam from the liquid. We go through at least one head of kale each week.

    That's too cute! "Hey baby spinach…"

    I love kale. So do the friggin' deer. They didn't touch a single collard or Swiss Chard plant but chewed every kale plant almost to the ground. But I am going to start some more this weekend!

    I like stewing it with diced tomatoes with some Italian seasoning. YUM!

    With the leftovers, I will throw some in the mix with some scrambled eggs for breakfast. Very Good!

    Kale Chips! Oven = 425. Olive oil, only a LITTLE salt, 5 mins…watch so they don't burn…DELISH!

    Wild Runner –> Greens and eggs is becoming one of my favorite things. Thanks for sharing!

    Patty –> Your deer have good taste!

    Dawn –> YUM! That sounds delish… and like it's begging for some sausage 😉

    Lorraine –> Kale chips are my favorite go-to snack for all those occasions when you're "supposed to" be snacking: Super Bowl, movies, PMS time. I like to melt coconut oil and toss the kale in them before baking — adds an extra layer of flavor. Try it!
