A couple quick discoveries that have really excited me about one of my favorite leaves:
1. The Union Square Farmers Market has massive heads of kale for 3 bucks. If looking prehistoric isn’t enough (which it is), it’s by far the sweetest, tastiest kale I’ve ever had. Jackpot.
2. The cooking time for kale can be cut dramatically by microwaving it before sautéing. Now, instead of cooking it down in chicken stock for 15 minutes until tender, I just zap it in the time it takes for the oil to heat up. Huge time saver.
So that’s pretty much it. Just shows to keep your eyes open – apparently, good things can keep on getting better…
