Today is National Kale Day!
I remember a time back in the dark ages when kale was nothing more than the decorated dividers in the refrigerated meat section at the grocery store. That was way back when I was a kid and because of that early experience, I always thought kale wasn’t meant to be eaten. At most, just a fancy garnish for other food. Who knew kale was so delicious and nutritious? Weirdly, I don’t remember exactly when kale became a thing.
Let’s celebrate with a few of my favorite kale items. Pictured above, kale chips, my gateway onto the kale-eating path. Crispy and crunchy, they’re the perfect snack for those salty crunchie munchies. Easy enough to make from any number of kale chip recipes floating around the internet. I used this one from Bon Appétit.
Nothing says kale more than a salad. Strawberry Tabouli Salad, a raw version of tabouli with strawberries instead of tomatoes and cauliflower replacing the bulgar wheat. So light and refreshing alongside falafel.
Easy Indian Fritters Baked Pakoda, my new favorite kale recipe. Now, we’re really cruising along the kale highway, super easy to make with chickpea flour and kale. So good and spicy! It’s sure to turn anyone over to the kale side.
Have a kale-ful day!
