Kale, the recently-favored-sister to spinach, is gracing many a kitchen these days, including ours. We’ve received it in our CSA box a couple of weeks in a row, and it’s been fun trying out new ways for all of us to enjoy it. Here are a few of my favorite ideas on how to prepare this delicious green for the kiddos:
This Sauteed Kale recipe is perfect for babies who are venturing into the world of solid foods. Simply sautee and then puree.
Kale Chips are a favorite for everyone in the house! They are extremely easy to make.
We made a big pot of this Tomato and Kale Soup last week. Instead of including potatoes, I added a cup of french lentils for protein. It was delicious. The great thing about soups is their flexibility – if you don’t have everything it calls for don’t allow one ingredient to hinder you from making it…just improvise! You might surprise yourself:)
Kale Mashed Potatoes are on our menu for this week. I may use the sweet potatoes from our CSA instead. Do you think it’ll still taste good if we do?
Lastly, I haven’t tried Green Lemonade yet because, in all honesty, I already have it stuck in my head that Remy will hate it. I’ve only heard such stories from other mamas but that isn’t a reason not to try…so…I’m putting this on my list for the week! I’ll let y’all know how it goes.
Does kale find a place your kitchen? What are your favorite ways to prepare it so that your kiddos will love it?
