No Fail Kale: 25 Delicious Recipes To Make Your Friends Green With Envy

This year a goal of mine has been to get more greens into our meal rotation. Spinach, chard, collards, kale — if it is green, I am trying to cook with it.

There are a ton of different greens out there but I have to say, I am really partial to kale. It is sturdy, so it holds up to all different types of cooking, and it’s versatile so it is also delicious raw. Plus there is the bonus that it is RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP!

There are so many recipes out there that feature this amazing GREEN, so if you are looking to squeeze more kale into your rotation too, here is a bit of inspiration.

And check it out, not a single one of these recipes is for a smoothie:

1. Health-Bent’s Braised Greens
2. Beantown Baker’s Massaged Kale with Pear and Pumpkin Seeds
3. Everyday Paleo’s Butternut Squash + Greens (the recipe calls for chard, I’ve used both Kale and Chard. It’s delish!)
4. Bon Appetit’s Tuscan Kale Caesar Slaw
5. Daily Bites’ Kale and Carrot Salad with Ginger-Peanut Dressing (sub Almond Butter to make Paleo)
6. Elena’s Pantry’s Chicken with Cherries and Kale
7. Stir It Up’s “Cheesy” Kale Chips
8. TGI Paleo’s Sausage Kale and Egg Bake
9. Jan’s Sushi Bar’s Turkey Sweet Potato and Kale Casserole
10. Life As A Dreger’s Masala Chili with Kale and Kolrabi
11. I Breath I’m Hungry’s Sriracha Lime Kale Chips
12. Stir It Up’s Kale Chicken Avocado Salad
13. Frisky Lemon’s Sweet Potato, Kale and Bacon Frittata
14. Bon Appetit’s Kale & Brussels Sprout Salad
15. Just A Titch’s Strawberry, Mandarin Ginger Kale Salad
16. Christine Cooks’ Kale Pesto Toss with spaghetti squash, maybe?
17. Branny Boils Over’s Kale Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
18. The Kitchn’s Kale and Goat Cheese Frittata Cups
19. Oh She Glows’ Tropical Mango Kale Salad with Creamy Pineapple Lime Coconut Dressing
20. Tastespotting’s Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Kale + Bacon
21. Pham Fatale’s Kale with Caramelized Kumquats
22. Little Blue Hen’s Kale and Fennel Saute

      Thanks, lady! I edited # 6. I heeeeeeart kale, so every night on the menu would be awesome — Although my miniature refrigerator would be able to hold nothing else besides 7 days worth of kale. :)

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
