All hail Kale…

September 21, 2009

My stepmother Lisa and I have an ongoing obsession with the Tuscan Kale salad at True Food. It is very simple, but so incredibly good. You just feel healthier ordering it. High in beta carotene, potassium, vitamins A, C and K, and rich in calcium, there is no downside to this hearty cabbage. I couldn’t get to True Food the other night, so I prepared my own Kale salad.

Kale is best served when steamed for about five minutes. A few minutes is enough time to soften Kale while maintaining all of the nutrients. Cooking Kale until it is al dente, tender on the outside and slightly firm on the inside, also helps brings out the best flavor.

In the True Food style, I kept it simple, my version had just a sprinkling of parmesan, some pistachios and a little of my favorite Queen Creek Mexican Lime Olive Oil. Really… what’s not to love about Kale?
