I really like Kale with Tahini dressing and jedra (carmelized onions, lentils, olive oil, garlic and rice or bulgur wheat)

Here is a recipe for Tahini dressing:

The second time I made a version of the mashed potato-kale casserole listed on the first page by Spaghetti, I added crushed corn flakes to the top before I put it in the oven.  The crunchiness really added to the dish.  It was awesome!

These recipes all sound so good! I only have tried kale once and I cooked it in a frying pan with a little oil, sort of sauteeing with chopped garlic, after tearing it into bite-sized pieces. I've got to start branching out!!

One moment can change everything!

I really love kale risotto. Just make a basic risotto with onions, white wine, veggie stock and then about 5 mins before its ready, in another pan sautee the kale in a little butter, maybe adding some sliced mushrooms, when they are all cooked just stir into the risotto.

Saute kale in olive oil with salt, pepper, and a bunch of minced garlic.  Heat up one drained and rinsed can of cannellini beans with a couple tablespoons of water, add minced garlic, salt to taste, and the juice of one lemon.  Mash with a potato masher, then combine with the kale.  Serve on toasted bread (sourdough/pain au levain is the best...mmm!).  I personally like to put Smart Balance on my bread first.

I have two favorites for kale:

Italian Breaded Kale

1 bunch kale, washed & torn
olive oil
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
1 c. dry, seasoned bread crumbs

Saute kale in a small amount of olive oil until tender.  Stir bread crumbs and parmesan cheese together and toss with the cooked kale.  Serves 3-6.

I got this recipe from the back of some package -- don't know if it was on the kale, the cheese, or bread crumbs.  I like to use the bread crumbs that come in a round container, but you can certainly make your own directly from bread or even by pulverizing croutons.

Caldo Gallego

2 c. dry white beans (or 6 c. cooked/canned)
1 onion, chopped
2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 green pepper, chopped fine
1 stalk celery, chopped fine
olive oil
1 bunch kale, washed & torn
salt & pepper to taste

Saute onion, garlic, green pepper, and celery in a small amount of olive oil until tender.  If you're starting with dried beans, set them to cooking in about 3-4 quarts of water.  You can add the sauteed vegetables to the cooking beans and simmer until beans are tender.  If your beans are already cooked, stir them and the sauteed vegetables into one quart of water and bring to a slow boil.

When beans are cooked, stir kale into the soup and keep at a simmer for at least 30 minutes.  Adjust seasonings to taste.

I first ate this soup at a Cuban restaurant in Orlando, FL.  The non-vegetarian version uses chorizo or other spicy sausage.  If you're into vegan substitutes for meat, you might try a vegan sausage or "fake bacon" to add a meaty flavor.  You can also add 1-3 potatoes cut into small cubes if you want to stretch it a bit more.

I like to use kale leafs as wrappings instead of tortillas, or bread. I also cut them into chunks, coat with olive oil & salt then dehydrate till crispy. They make a great crunchy, salty snack alternative to chips.

Last week I steamed some kale, then drizzled it with a bit of garlicky olive oil, a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of feta.  Simple but really tasty.

I make raw kale chips sometimes.  I just put some salt water or Bragg's liquid aminos on kale and put it in the dehydrator for a day or two. 

They are super tasty and no added fat!
