5 Ways You Can Eat Kale that Are Not Gross

After letting a bunch of kale rot in my crisper drawer one time too many, I discovered that I don’t like it. Let me backpedal a little. I don’t know how to cook kale, and eating it in a salad isn’t an option – so much chewing! However, kale is one of the healthiest green vegetables because of it’s high fibre content. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, the B vitamins, iron, protein, and magnesium. That’s a long list.

The best part is you don’t need to eat a lot of kale to get all these benefits, and I discovered a rule of thumb when deciding how to make this leafy vegetable delicous: always eat it cooked and always with other foods that drown out the taste…er I mean, bring out other flavours. It’s great in soups, stews, stir-frys, and grilled sandwiches!

1. White Bean & Kale Quesadillas

I tried a version of these at a restaurant, and they were delicious! You can choose to dip your quesadilla in chipotle sauce or bake it inside with all the other ingredients. Another tip: add caramelized onions! You won’t regret this.

2. Mediterranean Kale, Bean, and Farro Stew

Getting enough veggies in the winter can be a real struggle because all everyone wants is to eat pasta, pasta, and more pasta. Try this amazing soup-stew on the stove-top or slow cooker to warm up your insides.

3. Creamy Gnocchi Soup with Kale & Sausage

It’s time for some Zuppa Toscana! You’ll need: hot Italian sausage, roasted red peppers, kale, gnocchi, and heavy cream. Would it hurt to add some bacon and Parmesan cheese? I think not. Don’t you think it sounds mouthwatering?

When you have a bunch of day-old kale in the fridge and no time to spare, whip up a homemade sauce in minutes and fry up strips of steak, garlic, mushrooms, kale, and green onions. Serve over rice or noodles.

5. Kale, Potato & Onion Frittata

Instead of making your usual omelette for Sunday brunch, try something new. Cook onions, kale, garlic, diced potatoes, and eggs in a frying pan before transferring them to the oven to finish the cooking time. Yum!
