KALE STORM PREDICTED!

Feeling frail?   Eat some kale! You’ll find vibrant green, deep red and even bright purple  kale from JR organics and Suzie’s Farm at the Pacific Beach Tuesday Farmers’ Market this week. Red Russian, curly green, black, blue Scotch, Lacinato and Red Monarch are a few of our favorites.

Curly green kale combines beautifully with shaved fennel from Suzie’s, olive oil from The California Olive and balsamic vinegar from Bistro Blends, and spinach fettucine from Lisko Imports in this kale and fennel pasta recipe. Bake these tasty, crispy kale chips  with Red Monarch kale - they’re ideal for dipping in original Bitchin Sauce.  Lacinato kale, also known as dinosaur kale (a much more fun name, we think!) is a traditional crop of Tuscany and an essential ingredient in an authentic minestrone. Red Russian kale seems to have a particular affinity for garlic, so sautee it with some as a side dish, or layer it with garlic jack cheese from Springhill Cheese Company and sourdough bread from Belen bakery for a healthy twist on grilled cheese sandwiches.  

Speaking of health, there’s  growing body of evidence that kale is full of particularly potent source of nutrients that reduce the odds of developing several cancers. (But people taking commonly-prescribed blood thinners Warfarin should talk to their doctor before eating large amounts of kale.) A vegetable that’s tasty, versatile, and super healthy.  That’s something to kalebrate!
