Wizards can do as they please.

On topic: I second kale chips. I made a big batch the other day mixed in with some seaweed.

Roll the leaves up like a huge sushi, cut in thin strips.


Fire up the stove with some oil or fake butter, garlic cut into cubes and onion cut into strips.

Add the kale and stir-fry, then serve with black beans and rice.


Add salt if desired while still on the heat.

I sautee kale (or chard or collards if there's no kale at the store) with garlic and onions, spice it up with some cumin and chili powder, add some kind of beans (usually black beans) and then serve it over rice. The leftovers just get all mixed together and make a yummy lunch, hot or cold.

I steam big dragon kale leaves and use them as wraps for whatever I have in the fridge (especially useful if I need to pack a lunch).

I find kale too chewy to eat in a salad, so I stick to spinach there.

Not a fan of sautee-ing because I'm superstitious, but you can heat up a bit of olive oil, then garlic and cayenne and ginger, then cubed tofu, then dump a bunch of kale on top. Reduce heat, cover and then cook until kale is bright green. That's a good one.

Preference is to cut up kale or collards or chard (or all combined) with stems at the bottom of the pot, put in half-inch water medium heat and load pot according to density (usually collard and kale stems chopped up, then chopped up leaves.... Like to add nice mushrooms (nice vice from I think it's mycopia.com in the US) and tofu and ginger and garlic and cayenne. Tamari usually isn't necessary unless you know you need to the salt. Tofu and/or legumes (white, azuki, lentils, black, red ... what ever) as preferred/needed.

Love kale chips with a bit of nutritional yeast, also love it lightly steamed with some lemon juice and Himalayan salt.

I've also sauteed it with other veggies (adding the kale dead last and not overcooking it!) with coconut oil.

I really like massaged kale salads. I mash up some avocado and then massage it into the kale leaves.

Mostly though I just sautee the kale with some garlic, like you already said.



Can I get that recipe for kale chips? I'm new to kale and HATE IT right now. Haha I need a way to get it down:)

It's so easy it's not even a recipe, honestly. Preheat oven to 375 (sometimes 380-400 works better), spread pieces of kale on a baking sheet. Bake for 7, stir, then bake for another 7-10. Voila! Then add salt, nutritional yeast, garlic powder...whatever you like. :)

I make a very similar dish with tomatoes in it. I prepare the beans as a separate dish, but this sounds good. I definitely agree about the leftovers too.

Thank you! This does sound more palatable that what I've been eating :wink:

I love plain kale chips, especially with the combination of salad.
