Our awesome market gal Ashley, put together a great newsletter a couple weeks back, dedicated to kale. Kale can be a bit intimidating if you haven’t ever ate/cooked it before, so this informative newsletter helped a lot. Incase you didn’t get the newsletter or haven’t tried kale out yet, start with these easy and yummy recipes:
Kale Chips – Baked
Preheat oven to 300?F. Lay one bunch Lancinato Kale leaves out on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 20 minutes, or until crisp. Allow to cool and then transfer to a bowl. For an extra treat, crumble kale chips over popcorn and top with parmesan cheese.
Kale Salad – Raw
Slice Lancinato Kale into ¾ inch wide ribbons. Add ½ clove garlic paste, ¼ c. finely grated Pecorino cheese, 3 T. olive oil, ½ t. lemon juice, ¼ t. salt, 1/8 t. pepper flakes and black pepper, and whisk to combine. Pour dressing over kale and toss thoroughly to combine. Let salad sit for 5 minutes, then serve topped with bread crumbs, additional cheese and a drizzle of oil.
