Crazy about Kale on Cityline

Rose Reisman Cityline Kale

Check out the Benefits and uses of superfood kale on Cityline!

Kale is a super green, even more nutritious than spinach. This nutrient powerhouse comes in several varieties including Curly, Dinosaur and Red Russian. Dinosaur and Red Russian both offer up a sweeter flavour than Curly.

When it comes to storing this versatile veggie, this green keeps for a week in the refrigerator.

Raw kale is tough, so slice thinly. For the best texture and taste, place kale in a bowl and massage with olive oil.

Kale chips are so delicious, healthy & easy to make! Check out my kale chip recipe below:
