Kale: Spinach’s Ratchet Cousin

image

Lately I have been exposed to an excess amount of kale – warm kale salad with sundried tomatoes, kale sautéed with mushrooms & olive oil, plain tuff kale salad with some sort of vinaigrette, juiced kale – even kale nachos (oh yeah).   Regardlessly of the prep, the taste is pretty much the same to me – somewhat dry, rough in texture, doesn’t pair well with others and kind of a dusty after taste…. hence my comparison to the infamous ratchet cousin but the odd part is, I don’t know if I like it or not (just like the ratchet people & antics in my life).

Kale is a fibrous dark green vegetable, close to a wild cabbage.  It carries a very earthy smell and is said to be the healthiest vegetable on the planet, according to WebMD.com

Fascinated with this veggie because I feel somewhat indifferent about its presence in my mouth, I decided to share a mini Kale photo album with my fellow Food Hobbyists. Enjoy! #GoBigGreen haha
