Move over chips and popcorn! A healthy, salty, crunchy snack is moving in!
Serve with crusty bread and garnish with a sprinkle of chili powder, a drizzle of good olive oil, a dollop of fat free sour cream and some feta cheese, if desired. Celery is added late in the recipe to add crunch.
The perfect meal on cold days!
Hearty vegetable pasta sauce with an added bump of protein from green lentils.
For this recipe, I decided to forgo all that and use tender baby kale instead. It has a milder flavor than mature kale, similar to arugula, yet its leaves are still peppery and sturdy enough to stand up to bolder flavors. It comes pre-washed and ready to serve, so it will save you time and effort in the end.
Creamy and nutritious goodness in a pot!
Nutrition, warmth and happiness in a 2-cup serving. Very tasty.
Low calorie, low fat soup that is very satisfying.
Roasted veggies and tofu atop kale with a drizzle of tahini make this a great, quick lunch! Easy to make ahead for the week. Adapted from a recipe from Sugar Savvy Solutions.
Roasted Corn, Kale and Quinoa Burrito
Ground golden flax seed sprinkled on well-oiled shredded kale, with some garlic-heavy spices and a bit of sea salt. Crunchy and adds a bit of extra fiber to the diet, great substitute for grain-based, carb-heavy, high calorie chips.
While kale is very bitter in taste, the sauce not only removes the nasty taste, but gives the potatoes and chicken a wonderful flavor.
Found in food and wine magazine with my own additions added. Vegan/Vegetarian friendly!
Roasting vegetables intensifies thier natural flavor. Roasting kale removes the bitterness that prevents some people from enjoying it's many nutritional benefits.
From cookingquinoa.net, a hearty salad that is a complete meal
A delicious and quick way to prepare kale. It becomes crispy and almost nutty-tasting when roasted, especially with the sesame seeds.
