My list of favorite kale recipes for you to enjoy. Kale has finally had its (well-deserved) moment. This dark, leafy green is wonderful to cook with, and there are endless ways to incorporate it into your life and repertoire. Chopped kale is a nice addition to a host of soups or stir-fries. Baked kale is a flat-out phenomenon. Shredded kale tossed with a strong dressing makes a fantastic salad. And you can even make a kale version of pesto.Buy kale with vibrant, structured leaves. Rinse and wash leaves well before using, as dirt and grit love to nestle into the textured surfaces.
