Kale is super trendy, super delicious and super versatile. You can use it in salads, soups, stews, burgers, smoothies, there are endless options. Since it is still kale season, I thought I will share with you some of the best kale recipes. These are all amazing!
The story is simple. Germans love kale, they eat a lot of it this time of the year. They cook it and serve it with sausage. One little problem is that they only sell kale here in 1 kg bags. Do you know how much 1 kg of kale is? A lot! Almost too much. Especially if you eat it mainly raw….That’s why I’m always searching for new recipes not to get bored of it.
Let’s talk about kale a bit. It is a nutritional powerhouse, basically everything you need. It contains a lots of fiber, cancer fighting anti-oxidants, iron, calcium and vitamin A, C, K. And it is alkaline! And tasty and pretty, most importantly.
So here are 15 delicious kale recipes to make you and me happy!
