2 Ways to prepare KALE - My New Favorite Green Leaf!

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with BROKER of Green Realty Properties® - 954-667-7253 BK3175566

Kale is an amazing vegetable often called the "Queen of Greens". I happen to agree with that title and with several friends watching their diets, either for weight loss or for the betterment of their health, I wanted to share 2 simple ways to prepare and enjoy this flavorful and nutritious food to show them my support.


Kale Salad                                                                                                             

 

What you need:

·         2 Bunches of Kale, washed - ripped leafy part from vein in big pieces

·         ¼ Cup of Olive Oil

·         2 Teaspoons of Salt

·         3 Cloves of Garlic, crushed

·         ¼ cup of nutritional Yeast

·         1 Teaspoon of lemon juice of Apple Cider Vinegar

·         Gloves (to massage the leaf pieces)

 

 

What do you do:

Place all ingredients in a blender (except the kale) and process until smooth then pour it over the kale. Massage the leaves for a few minutes and allow to marinate for at least 15 minutes before servicing. Refrigerate if not consumed, will last 2-4 days.

 

Kale Chips

What you need:

·         Food Dehydrator.

 

What do you do:

After following the recipe above, place the kale on a teflex-lined dehydrator sheets and dehydrate until dry (6 to 8 hours). Set the dehydrator temperature for no higher than 105 degrees (still considered raw). The chips are best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will last 2-4 weeks.


These dishes are raw, vegan, and extremely nutritious!


KALE is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Patty,  I'm confused by your comment in #5 (Gloves needed only only for hygiene but because you don't want to your hands to smell like garlic for a week!)  The cloves are put in the blender with everything else ...right?  I don't get the hygiene part ... I get not smelling like garlic.

Lou, it is both healthy and delicious!

Dale, what a coincidence! I added Kale to my pasta today!

Kathleen, juicing is SOO good for the body. I am not surprised you lost 13 lbs. I am sure you look and feel great.

You got to massage the kale once you put the dressing on it - that's why you need gloves!

Patty,

I had no idea Kale needed a spa treatment prior to eating.  Now I have learned something new, and I will try some kale next time from our Farmers' Market. A

R & A - Hilarious - thanks for the laugh.

On a practical matter, if you massage the kale it loses its toughness and it makes for flavorful.

Sounds yummy, Patty.   Have to try this especially the kale chips.  Have to drag out the dehydrator or can I do it in the oven?  What temp if I do the oven?
