Jeremy’s take on kale

Boiled dressing = easy and delicious!

Kale with pears, pomegranate and boiled dressing = easy and delicious!

I’ve been busy with family in the midst of a big move and exotic holidays. So Vinny has been on sabbatical!

But I saw this cute cartoon on Kathy Man’s blog the other day and Jeremy made me laugh. Maybe you’ll like it too :).

Jeremy might even prompt you to have a look at Vinny’s earlier posts on kale. One (in the photo at the top) is an easy salad with a tasty boiled dressing.

Another combines kale with coconut oil… and chocolate! How can you go wrong? Just be sure to follow the technique, or the kale chips could end up looking and tasting like wet noodles, swimming in squid ink. Oh no!

coconut oil

Make chocolate chips from the notorious kale using some extra healthy coconut oil.

As Jeremy points out, Kale is often not the most popular kid on the block. But with a few tips, it can be delicious. Do Jeremy’s mom a favor. Forward this link on to her, so maybe she can learn how to make kale in ways even a teenager might like!

    I always eat it with this dressing:
    I rub it in a bit in advance so the leaves soften a bit. It’s really good!

    This looks so yummy! The colors are incredible. I have never had kale in the past. Can you believe it? It is just impossible to find in France. Some American friends have promised to send me some seeds so I can have some in my own garden. I cannot wait!

      Wow, it is indeed hard to believe that France has been able to block the nefarious Kale from its markets. It takes a bit of practice to get it to taste good, but it’s really worth persevering. Good luck with your garden!

    I like the cartoon, but is there a connection between the top half and the bottom half? I can’t see it.

      Hi Derek – The top half shows what the kid thinks about his Kale Salad… inedible (metal, hedgehogs, mice tails). The bottom half shows why his mom likes kale (good for you so eat it anyway).

      Vinny thinks you can make foods that are good for you taste good, too!
