Kale is one of my all time-favorite veggies. Okay, maybe not ‘all-time’, as I really only discovered its existence about 5 years or so…but during that time, it has since taken top position in my veggie repertoire. What I love most about it, is its simplicity and versatility- I adore eating it raw, sauteed, juiced, blended (with other goodies), or baked- plus it is one of the easiest and hardiest veggies to grow in your home garden (I swear this stuff would grow through a snow storm). Above, you can see two varieties of kale that my husband grew in our garden this summer. My personal fav, is called dinosaur kale (it’s the kale with the long and narrow leaves).
