I thought I liked kale a lot, but in doing today’s research for this blog, I came across someone who’s got me beet (oops, I meant beat!). Cause the other thing I really like are beets!
There’s this woman, Diana Dyer, and it appears her life is KALE! She writes a blog called 365 Days of Kale – http://www.365daysofkale.com/ – You gotta love a gal like that!
Kale is so full of natural health, it’s one of the best things you can add to your diet. Kale is a powerhouse of vitamins and contains huge amounts of calcium, lots of vitamin B6. One cup of this tasty vegetable can give you almost 180% of your daily requirement of Vitamin A, 200% of the requirement of Vitamin C, 40% of the magnesium, and an unbelieveable 1020% of your daily requirement of Vitamin K, necessary for blood clotting (or Klotting this weeK!).
To make a really easy side dish using this fabulous green just saute some up with a little red vinegar.
1-1/2 pounds kale, preferably the young fresh kind, coarsely chopped
3 TBL. Extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
½ C. vegetable or chicken stock ((or water)
Salt & pepper to taste
Splash of red wine vinegar
Heat the extra virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and heat until soft, but not burnt. Add the stock and kale and toss to coat, heating over high heat. Cover and cook for 5 minutes until the liquid has evaporated. Season with salt & pepper to taste, and add a splash of the red wine vinegar.
Kool Kale Koming out of the Kitchen!
