Kale Salad, Kale Omelette

Kale
My wife has been trying to get me to eat more healthy foods, many of which I’ve never tried before. Some are pretty tasty and some I just don’t like. She read some where that Kale was very good for you, full of antioxidents, amino acids, some other stuff. Anyway she bought a head of it and brought it home.

She made a Kale salad with pine nuts and goat cheese. You could probably use blue cheese if you don’t like goat cheese. She toasted the pine nuts in a small frying pan and a little olive oil. Keep an eye on these as you just want them to brown a little.  They will rapidly burn if you aren’t careful. Put it all together in a salad bowl and add a little of your favorite Italian dressing.

I found that the Kale tasted a little like a cross between spinach and curly parsley. Denser and chewier than spinach but good. I thought I’d try it on my own so I made a Kale omelette. Simply beat an egg, pour it into a hot frying pan, let it cook until it just hardened, then add the ingredients to one half. In this case finely chopped Kale, onion, ham and cheddar cheese. Flip the egg over on top of the filling, cover and cook until the cheese melts. It’s an interesting flavor. The texture is kind of unexpected but not bad.   Try it you might like it. Enjoy!
