Superfoods: 4 Ways to Prepare Kale

Kale is a superfood rich in vitamins K, A, and C, minerals, and brain-boosting phytonutrients. It’s good for skin health, the heart, detoxing, bones, vision, and strengthening the immune system. But regardless of all these amazing health benefits, it’s not always clear what the best way to consume it is. Here are four ideas to help you get creative with your kale and to enjoy delicious as well as nutritious meals.

Crispy Kale

Place your kale in a baking tray and cover in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 F, or until the kale has gone crispy. Serve with cream cheese or hummus.

Kale Smoothie

Put your kale in a blender with celery, carrots, and cucumber and puree until smooth. Serve in a glass chilled.

Kale Salad

Kale is most nutritious when eaten raw. Mix your kale with spinach, lettuce leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, and sweet corn before dressing it in olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a fresh salad.

Peanut Butter Curry

Boil noodles and kale for 10 minutes, or until both are cooked through. Then mix in peanut butter, fried onions, garlic, and eggplant. Season with salt and pepper.
