This isn't a recipe so much as a food suggestion: try new vegetables. We've had kale many times, however, black kale was a bit of a novelty. There are so many great veggies out there. Sometimes I like to go to the store and just try veggies I've never had before. You can research on the internet how to prepare them, or if in doubt, saute with a little coconut oil and a pinch of sea salt. It's a wonderful, veggie-tastic world out there, and brassicas abound. Yay!
We lightly sauteed up a few bunches of black kale with a little coconut oil and sea salt on low heat, and it was fabulous. I could eat brassicas from dawn til dusk, being a green veggie lover. My son seems to take after me in that regard. They all have quite different flavours, kale having more of a savoury flavour and bite to it than broccoli, with its mellow sweetness ...
Some people prefer kale baked until crisp. To prepare it that way, wash it, cut it into bite sized pieces, and massage it with some oil, a little sea salt, possibly some lemon, or parmesan cheese. Whatever turns your fancy. Then bake in the oven spread on a baking sheet until crisp. It's delicious. However, I have to confess that I still prefer my brassicas sauteed. They are so lush and luscious that way.
What cool veggies have you tried, and how do you like 'em prepared?
