What's Cooking?: It's All About Kale!

Kale is so healthy and delicious, full of vitamins and antioxidants.  The word is out as its popularity continues to grow about its health benefits.  However, I resisted trying this luscious curly forest green vegetable with its coarse texture until my son convinced me of how great the kale salad he has been having for lunch.  As a result, I found there are many uses for kale with various techniques in preparation as in salads, in soups and stuffing, and kale chips.  The kale chips are a blast to make with their light, wispy-like quality.  Stir-fry kale with garlic is titassiteexquisitely delicious in its simplicity.  It is a great substitute for spinach in many recipes.  Its sturdy texture doesn’t fall apart as easily as spinach does.  I like it in my quiche for its chewier texture!
