Green and White

Nope, it’s not a new fancy brand of chocolate with sleek packaging at eye-popping prices, but our kale for the week! So, introducing green and white kale from a local Kentish farm, which is a lovely tender leaf. Reminiscent in taste to cabbage, white kale offers a delicate texture and sweeter flavour once cooked.

Kale (of any colour) is so versatile there are endless recipes for them. For an entertaining read for vegging out recipe ideas, then check out this 27 signs we’ve reach peak kale article. And here are 22 recipes including the likes of charred kale pizza with garlic and curry squash soup with kale.

It also pairs perfectly with beans in the classic soup or stew combination (especially with some sausages). Alternatively, try this sauteed greens with cannellini beans and garlic or pan-fried with giant white beans with kale (butter beans would work just as well) with toasted walnuts and a grating of nutmeg (ahh, winter and Christmas really is just around the corner ain’t it?).

And the quintessential go-to recipe: the kale bowl. This recipes suggests quinoa (although that sorts out your protein) but if 10 minutes is too long to wait, then substitute with cous cous and simply microwave-steam the kale. Your cous couse would have cooked by the time you’ve sorted everything else out.
