How to cook kale recipes healthy? How to prepare it without meat?

Welcome everyone here, this is my per-last question for today, and it is based on vegetables, and if to be more specific – kale. As you probably know, kale (or leaf cabbage) is a particular cultivar of cabbage,  grown for its edible leaves.

Yesterday I went to the vegetarian restaurant with my vegetarian friend and there I had an opportunity to try some dish with very unusual name, which also included kale in it. I couldn’t even think that I will like it that much. Now I want to cook some dishes with it at home, and maybe I can find something delicious? Is it hard? What recipes can you give? Thanks!

Hello Mary! No problems, here we go with some recipes and my favourite one is potatoes in their skins (really delicious, i cook it often)

So, we need:

1 baking potato

drizzle of olive oil

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

salad leaves, to serve

For the bacon and kale

2 streaky bacon rashers, fried until crisp

handful of kale, blanched and roughly chopped

1 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche

To cook this dish:

Preheat the oven to 210C. Rub the potato with a little oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size. Then leave the potatoes to cool a little. Use a knife to cut into the potato, leaving a 3mm border. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash with a fork. Return the skins to the oven to crisp up for 6–7 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling. Whichever filling you are making, simply mix all the ingredients into the mashed potato. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the skins from the oven, spoon in the filling, sprinkle with the cheese if using and bake for a further 6–7 minutes. Put the salad leaves on a plate, dress with a drizzle of oil and a squeeze of lemon juice and serve with the potatoes.

Bon Appetit!

Hi there! I am not a fan of cabbage in general but kale is an exception! I often cook kale soup and gladly tell you how to. For the ingredients, you need 500 grams of kale, 3 not large potatoes, a lemon, an onion, around 50 grams of your favorite kind of seeds, 250 ml of soy cream, 2 veggie bouillon cubes, some olive oil, salt and peppers to your taste. Peel and chop the onion and potatoes, roast them in olive oil together with cut kale leaves for about 10 minutes, add the lemon juice and 2 liters of water, wait until it starts to boil and add bouillon cubes, peppers, and salt. Lower the heat and keep the pan uncovered for half an hour more. When the soup is ready puree it in a blender. Serve with soya cream and seeds on top. Enjoy!

Hi, Mary! 

To be honest, I do not like vegetables at all but my mom often cooks something with kale so I think I can help you.

Do you like pasta? I have one tasty recipe – whole wheat pasts with kale and mushrooms. This meal has 515 calories but it is so hearty meal that you won't be hungry for some hours then.

Well, to do this pasta you need such ingredients: kale, whole wheat spaghetti, mushrooms and some spices like coriander or pepper. 

I hope you will like this dish and it will become one of your favorite. 

I like kale too. By the way, it has some cancer-fighting properties. There is one very easy and fast kale recipe.
To start, you have to soak kale leaves in the water for a while (about 2-3 min) to clean it out of the dirt. Take it out of the water and cut the stems. Chop the leaves into 2,5 cm pieces. After that, chop a few garlic cloves and fry it in the olive oil in a skillet. Add kale to garlic, cover it and stir occasionally. After 5-6 min it's ready. Enjoy your kale! 

Hi Mary! I have a nice recipe of smoothie with kale pineapple and blueberry for you! Here it is:

Hi there, Mary!) Oh, I love vegeterian dishes soooo much! Once I tried to do it at home, however I am not a perfect cook at all, so it tasted… let’s say not so well ???? But one recipe was very easy to repeat even for me! Hope you will also like it. So, this is my easy and “lazy” recipe for delicious kale chips. Everything is very simple: you just need to wash kale and put on the plate, which you will place in the microwave for 7-10 minutes. You can also add sea salt and some seasonings on your taste. After chips are already prepared, you can start eating them. Bon appetite!)
