Farm Share Friday: Lacinato Kale Hearts
Here's a not so secret secret. We don't even like kale. I'll never forget at our old farm share, overhearing a woman in the barn talking about how much her kids loooooooved kale chips. So the dude and I thought, "we'll try that, even kids like it." We chopped kale and spread the kale on a baking sheet, we oiled the kale and salted the kale. And then we threw away kale chips.
For a while I was using it in a chocolate-kale smoothie from Superfood Smoothies. It was okay but maybe a little gritty, what I really needed was one of those high performance blenders. But alas, even after I got one of those high performance blenders I realized the chocolate-kale smoothie was gross. So now kale is confined to stewed preparations. Two of our favorites are Chicken, Sweet Potato and Kale Soup (Skinny Taste) and Coconut Curried Kale and Sweet Potato (Cookie and Kate).
