Kale

Yup, I said Kale.

Kale is a form of cabbage and is considered to be a highly nutritious veggie.
It is a powerful antioxidant, it is an anti-inflammatory, is high is beta carotene, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Lutine, Zeaxanthin and Calcium.
(dont ask me what the two before Calcium are, I aint got a clue!)

My friend Julie has been cooking with Kale alot and I just had to give it a try.



I washed them, roughly chopped it up and threw it in a pan with a little bit of butter and olive oil. I tossed it around for a few minutes and at the end added a pinch of salt and some garlic.


It was actualy very delish.
Kinda rough and chewy but otherwise good.
I would definately have this again and serve it to my family knowing its great nutritional value!

I'm linking to what we ate wednesday at Buggie & Jellybean

And just look at that beautiful ornamental kale

Thanks for playing along with us today, but I have to pass on this recipe. Unfortunately I'm highly allergic to Kelp, but I'm sure there's other readers that aren't. Sounds tasty! Have a great one, and hope to see you next week too.

You just don't see that many recipes for Kale. I'm going to have to mark this one down.

I might enjoy the cooked kale as I really enjoy spinach cooked this way and it kind of looks like it to me. Thanks for the recipe and the photos of the ornamental kale are gorgeous. I love the different colors, especially the purple.
Thanks for linking up with us, too, I can't wait to see what you have for us next Thursday.
