Kale, O Kale,
'Tis thy crispy viand -
Burgeoning obsession -
- Leaves, I love the most.



I tried kale for the first time yesterday.. in a scrumptious kale and white bean soup. It's love, my fellow chicks. Pure, unadulterated love. Do you also love kale? How do you prepare it? Any favorite recipes? Oh, kale <3

A friend of mine makes kale chips - I have no idea how though, but I bet you could find a recipe!

I love kale too!

Kale chips are easy, spray with some cooking spray and toss with a little salt and put in the oven until crisp.

Chopped in soups, baked in eggs, wilted with a little bacon, stir fried. Yum!

it's great in minestrone soup too! i bet you could use it in place of spinach in alot of places. rachael ray has tons of ideas for salads and big beans and greens soups.

I love kale too. One of my favorites is a massaged kale salad. Oh so good.

"Massaged" kale? Okay, I've got to look this up. Sounds like the kale is taken to a spa, lies on a special table & gets a good Swedish rubdown. Maybe it's exfoliated with Dead Sea salts. Maybe it gets a row of warm river pebbles placed down its back at particular pressure points.

That kale is living better than most humans I know.

Here is a massaged kale recipe I found:
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aarti-sequeira/massaged-kale-salad-recipe/index.html

Basics when I do it are olive oil or avocado (not oil, actual avocado), lemon juice and a little salt and pepper.

Srsly. I would like such a massage. Shouldn't those of us with central nervous systems rate better than kale? And why does this whole thread and picturing kale getting a massage make me think of Sponge Bob Square Pants?
