If you’re trying to live healthily, you may have thought about eating more vegetables. However, there’s a good chance you’ve been reluctant to indulge in kale because it’s known for being bitter. Thankfully, there are some amazing kale dishes you can try out, which boast all the benefits of this vegetable without any of the bitterness.
Kale Pesto With Pasta
If you love yourself some pasta, then you might want to try out this dish. Purée some kale with parmesan and blended nuts to create a tasty pesto, then add it to a bowl of cooked wholewheat pasta. It’ll give your tastebuds the kick they didn’t know they needed.
Kale And Ricotta Pie
Sometimes you can’t beat a good pie, and it turns out kale tastes amazing in something like this. You’ll need a few hours for the vegetable to soften in a bowl of oil and lemon juice. However, once that’s done, you can add it to some pizza dough – along with plenty of mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan – and wait half an hour for it to cook.
Fideos With Chicken And Kale
If you’re looking for something a little meatier, kale also goes great with chicken thighs and fideos – aka noodles. Just cook the chicken in a skillet, then use the fat from that to cook the noodles. Once that’s done, create a sauce from tomato paste, onion, garlic, paprika, and kale to mix it all together with.
Kale And Mushroom Strata
Kale and mushroom are two things that tend to get a bad rep, but they make quite the combination in this dish. Toast 13 ounces of sourdough bread in the oven before cooking mushrooms, leeks, and kale. Then, add half of the bread to a skillet and pour on half of the cooked vegetables with some parmesan and Gruyère. Repeat this process and then bake for 40 minutes.
Hopefully, you’ll find these kale dishes to your liking.
