How to love Kale more

I’m assuming most people have no idea what kale is. Every time I speak of it I get a slew of questions about what it is, what it tastes like and how to prepare it.

In short, Kale is part of the Brassica family (also included in this family are such notables as brussel sprouts and collards. It’s a low glycemic food and packs healthy like broccoli grants miricles.

It’s a bit tough for a leafy green, which is why someone suggested to me that it needs a longer cooking time than your normal vegetable might need. I personally stirfry it, BUT I’ve been making kale chips lately to spice things up a bit.
