Kale has been super trendy for a while now, and for good reasons. First, it’s one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Like its cruciferous relatives, it’s an excellent source of antioxidants, and it’s jam-packed with pro-vitamin A, vitamins B6, K, and C; it’s also rich in manganese, calcium and other important minerals. Did you know it contains more vitamin C than an orange? One cup of raw kale contains almost 700% of the recommended daily value of vitamin K!
In other words, hearty kale is a leafy green we can never get enough of. In this roundup, we’ve gathered many different ways you can enjoy it. You can add it to your breakfast recipes, turn it into pesto, and add it to pilafs, soups, and salads. Exploring these recipes might convert kale-skeptics and inspire kale fans who are looking for new ideas to incorporate it into their everyday meals.
