6 Ways to Serve Kale

Now that it is wintertime, kale is on the menu again! A lovely versatile vegetable which is very high on vitamin K, like all leafy greens. I love raw kale recipes, not only the flavour but also the activity of massaging the tough leaves to soften the texture for a salad and as added bonus reap the benefits of not cooking down anything of nutritional value!

 

Here are 6 ways to use kale:

  1. green smoothiesKale is awesome in a good old mash (made with normal or sweet potatoes) served with onion gravy and a vegetarian sausage, vegetarian meatballs or a hearty lentil stew.
  2. It is wonderful in green smoothies, <click> image on the left for a bigger image with great recipe idea’s.
  3. Sometimes I add shredded kale to my omelet for breakfast or lunch.
  4. The vegetable is amazing in salads, both savoury or sweet.
  5. Recently I discovered kale is a great addition in pasta’s with a flavour packed cheese (Gouda, Parmesan, Feta or whichever blue cheese one prefers).
  6. Most of all kale is awesome when dried: kale chips are nutrient dense but a healthy variety of crisps! I was very glad to finally have found a recipe without use of a dehydrator: Grokker has a post by Talya Lutzker where she prepares them in the oven! Scrumptious recipe, I adore it!

Nutritional information:

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that is absolutely essential in blood clotting, building strong bones, preventing heart disease and also a crucial part of other bodily processes. This ‘forgotten vitamin’ and its benefits are often overlooked. Vitamin K and vitamin D complement and enhance each other’s functioning, a helpful and welcome combination in the darker  days of the year!

I love getting the best out of people, igniting their wish to improve themselves using their own strength as it also pushes me to keep in touch with my own highest aspirations in life. My spiritual journey started when life forced me to 'wake up', with a somewhat uncomfortable reality check. Now, I am in the process of reshaping myself, my life and finding a whole new person along the way together with the meaning that makes it all worthwhile. Join me on the adventure of a lifetime, let’s transform!
