Ways to Prepare Kale

Kale, the green leaf super food can be made in few ways: (without talking about the green juice 🙂

  1. Kale Chips – This simple preparation of kale will have you begging for more. A crispy salty treat that is better than popcorn or potato chips.
    1. With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
    2. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. kale pesto– More flavorful than basil pesto, this is a great addition to pizza, pasta, or in an omelet
  3. ingredients
    • ¼- ½ cup chopped walnuts
    • 1 ½ -2 teaspoons salt
    • ½ pound lacinato kale, stems removed, coarsely chopped (1 medium bunch should do)
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • ½ cup olive oil
    • ½ tsp old bay seasoning
    • ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
    • Ground black pepper to taste


    • Toast chopped walnuts in a dry, heavy skillet (such as cast iron) over high heat, stirring constantly until they start to brown and become fragrant. Alternatively, place on a baking sheet and toast at 325 degrees. Keep an eye on nuts – they burn quickly and will get bitter!
    • Bring about two quarts of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon of the salt, then add kale. Cook, uncovered, until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from pot and drain.
    • In a blender or food processor, add garlic, walnuts and drained kale and whiz until well combined. Pour in oil in a steady stream, and pulse until combined. Add ½ teaspoon salt and Old Bay Seasoning, pulse, then taste. Add remaining ½ teaspoon of salt if necessary.
    • Spoon pesto into a bowl and stir in cheese and pepper.

    3   Sauteed Kale-For a hearty side dish, this is a classic preparation. I saute onions and garlic before I add the kale, and add a couple dashes of hot sauce   for an added kick.

  4. Kale quiche   -You can substitute any spinach quiche with kale and it offers the same great taste with the added health benefits.

5. Kale Soup– Just add kale to any vegetables soup!

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
