20 Great Kale Recipes

I bought my first bunch of kale the other day. Unbelievable, I know. I’ve had friends extol its virtues to me time & time again, but I’d still yet to try it (outside of zuppa tuscana, of course). Yes, I know it’s a “nutritional powerhouse” with tons of iron, fiber, vitamins A, C & K & antioxidants. I also know it’s an anti-inflammatory food. So in short, yes, I know I should be eating it.

On Friday, I was at the farmer’s market, spending my lunch hour wandering & getting ideas based on what looked good & what was in seasons. Then I saw the kale laying there on a table, & it was so vibrantly green & beautiful. I just had to buy it. Once I got home, I kinda stared at it. I had no idea where to go from there. So what did I do? I turned to Facebook to get some ideas.

Then I consulted Google & found a plethora of amazing kale-inspired recipes. Naturally, I started a list of the ones I wanted to try & figured I’d share the top 20:

  1. Baby Kale, Mozzarella, and Egg Bake
  2. Baked Kale Chips
  3. Baked Parmesan Kale Chips
  4. Couscous with Kale & Green Garlic Dressing
  5. Creamy Mushroom & Kale Quesadillas
  6. Curried Chickpeas & Kale
  7. Italian Meatball & Kale Soup
  8. Kale, Carrots, & Sesame Seeds with Stir-Fry Sauce
  9. Kale Hummus
  10. Kale Salad with Oranges, Almonds and Avocado
  11. Kale & Potato Hash
  12. Lemon Avocado Massaged Kale Salad
  13. Marinated Kale & Green Bean Salad
  14. Miso & Sesame Kale Chips
  15. Pasta with Creamy Kale Pesto
  16. Potato, Bacon & Kale Quiche
  17. Sausage, Potato & Kale Soup
  18. Tangy Kale & Carrot Quinoa
  19. Triple Berry Kale Salad
  20. Turkey Sausage, Kale & White Bean Soup

Looks like I’ll be buying some more kale at the farmer’s market.
