Are you growing kale? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

I know someone mentioned she was growing kale. If you're already bored with the usual method of cooking kale, here's a good alternative--if you like curry!


1/2 cup olive oil

1 cup chopped onions

3 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (or canned equivalent)

4 cups fresh or frozen chopped kale (I bet canned spinach or turnip greens would work)

4 cups diced red potatoes, steamed 15 minutes (I boiled mine--or you could use canned equivalent)

4 cloves garlic, sliced

2-3 tbs curry powder dissolved in 2 tbs water

1/2 tsp ground allspice

1/2 tsp ground ginger (I use a 1/2 inch piece of ginger root, chopped fine)

1/2 tsp paprika

2 tsp salt

In a large saucepan, saute onions and tomatoes in oil over med heat for about 15 mins. Add remaining ingredients and cook another 5 mins.

thanks OG!

kale is vastly under-rated! and SOOOOO easy to grow!

here's my contribution to the kale recipe list.....very delicious....


3 heads fresh kale (cut into 1/4's)

1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

1/4 cup tamari

1/8 cup minced fresh garlic

1/4 cup sesame seeds

Saute oil, garlic and tamari, then add kale. Do not overcook. The kale should not be too limp, and should be bright green. Toss with sesame seeds. (i spread the kale out on a cookie sheet immediately after the saute to cool so it won't continue cooking and become mushy..........this makes a large amount, but it's excellent served cold and keeps in the fridge for several days)

Europeans claim that kale has a better flavor after it has been frozen. My mother in Holland put it outside for a night so it would freeze. So put it in the freezer for a day and then cook it.

My mother used to cook kale and potato's and than cut up the kale and mix it with the potato's. Delicious with lot's of butter!
