14 Unbeatable Kale Recipes

Sweet Potatoes With Kale (or other Winter Greens)
Inspired by a recipe from the Obama’s White House chef, kale (or any other winter green) is a great pairing for sweet potatoes and a mix of garlic, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, cinnamon and maple syrup to turn it into a true treat.

Stir-Fried Winter Greens With Garlic Shrimp & Rice
Another dish that can be enjoyed all year long. You certainly don’t need to use shrimp if you’d prefer just the veggie part of this yummy stir-fry or you could substitute tofu, too.

Wheat Berries with Charred Onions & Kale
Wheat berries have a nice nutty flavor and chewy texture that goes very nicely with the kale and the sweetness of the onions. But you could also sub in another whole grain like farro, barley or brown rice and I’m sure it’d be equally tasty.

Sautéed Kale with Toasted Pine Nuts & Raisins
I love making spinach this way and kale is just as tasty. A great mix of savory (garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon) and sweet (raisins) that is downright addictive. Don’t skimp on the pine nuts.

Thanks for the ideas- but I did not see any recipes just recommendations on what to do with Kale. It is a great green & I have even put small amounts in my vegan protein smoothies to get the extra protein & also other benefits. Love it raw too.
