THE ULTIMATE WONDER DRUG – KALE
Posted by Long Island Holistic Health on 9/9/09
While iceberg lettuce can be very refreshing, it has almost no nutritional value, yet traditionally that’s what you get for a salad. When do you see kale at restaurants? Are you not sure what it looks like? It’s that green leafy stuff that is usually the garnish on the side of the plate, next to the baked potato. NOBODY PUTS KALE IN THE CORNER (of the plate)! Kale is so much more than garnish! Read the whole story
Another Kale Recipe…..
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Yields: 10 servings or more
1 to 2 bunches kale
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Remove kale from stalk, leaving the greens in large pieces.
Place a little olive oil in a bowl, dip your fingers and rub a very light coat of oil over the kale.
Place kale on baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until it starts to turn a bit brown. Keep an eye on it as it can burn quickly.
Turn the kale over and bake with the other side up. Remove and serve.
Notes: Try different kinds of kale or collard greens.
For added flavor sprinkle with a little salt or spice, such as curry or cumin after rubbing on olive oil.
