One of the Tastiest Kale Recipes You'll Ever Find
Jun 30, 2007 Stephanie Gallagher
Kale is tossed in olive oil and roasted, then tossed with sea salt.
Kale is one of the healthiest foods around. It's full of vitamins A, C and K, and it is a great source of manganese, calcium and iron. It also has no cholesterol and offers a nice serving of fiber and protein.
The problem is kale is much tougher than other leafy greens, like swiss chard, collard greens and spinach. Hence, it isn't as versatile for cooking. It doesn't work as well in salads or sauces, for example, as spinach or swiss chard.
That's probably also why most recipes for kale are for soups or stir fries. This recipe breaks that mold. The kale comes out of the oven crispy and salty, giving it an almost fried-like texture. The result is a great way to get kids (and grown-ups alike) to eat this uber-nutritious vegetable.
Now, this recipe does have quite a bit of fat as a percentage of overall calories -- far more than a typical healthy recipe. Still, most of that fat is monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, and it has no -- nada, zilch -- cholesterol. Plus, this kale recipe is so rich in vitamins, it's hard to argue that it isn't healthy. Check the nutritional data for yourself, and you decide if it's worth it.
Because this kale recipe has only three ingredients, you want to make sure the ingredients you use are of the highest quality. Try to use a good-quality sea salt.
