Kale- that vegetable that so many say they don't like, and have only tried it after its been boiled, with some butter! Yech! There are so many delicious varieties....Laccinato- Tuscan dinosaur kale, curly dwarf Scottish, Red Bor, and White Russian.. to name a few. The main thing to know when cooking kale is that you have to remove the tough center rib, and just use the leaves.

  • Cut them into 1-1/2" pieces, and parboil them for 15 minutes in a pan of water.
  • Pour into a collander to drain, and then saute in a pan of olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper. A squeeze of lemon adds zest.
  • Or, you can take the same cut up leaves, toss with olive oil and salt, and
  • bake at 275 degrees for about 20 minutes till crisp.

This makes delicious and healthy kale chips that you can eat as finger food. So comb your hair down, drop your eyebrows, and close that gaping mouth the next time someone says, "Want some kale"?!?
