As with all things. Cook in butter, add bacon. There is NOTHING for which this
life hackcooking tip doesn’t work.
If you’re vegetarian swap bacon for garlic and black pepper.

I imagine sesame oil would work in place of buttersuck it up sunshinethisisnotaspoonMember
Olive oil, red onions, garlic, chilli, bacon (in that order at 1 minute intervals into a hot wok).
Kale (1 minute to wilt slightly)
Half pint of boiling stock (chicken or ham/bacon), high enough heat to boil off most of the stock in 4-5 minutes.
Or skip the stock and stir fry for a couple of minutes before adding a big pour of balsamic vinegar and continuing to sir fry until caramelized.Posted 6 months agoballsofcottonwoolMember
My kids will fight over these kale crisps and have declared them better than chips.
1/4 tsp salt
1 garlic clove
leaves from a sprig of fresh rosemary
2 tbsp olive oil
preheat oven to 120C.
cut the kale from its stems, wash well, dry thoroughly (really important) salad spinner works well.
Grind the salt garlic and rosemary and oil to a paste in pestle and mortar.
Massage the oily mixture into every dimple of the kale. Spread out on a single layer on two lightly oiled large baking trays and bake for 30 minutes.Posted 6 months agojohnnersMember
Boil it. As a general rule I don’t think it’s a good idea for water to touch greens, preferring to steam, stir fry or microwave but you have to show kale who’s boss. Once you’ve boiled it for 5 minutes or so you can drain it and do something to make it taste nice, like stir frying with chili and garlic or tossing it with some butter and lemon juice.
But boil it first.Posted 6 months agoShackletonSubscriber
Handfull of raw destemmed kale, 3-4 bits of sundried tomato, glug of olive oil, squeeze of lemon juice, salt, pepper and blitz into a rough paste.
Use as a dip or in sandwiches. Works well with hummus and carrots cooked in oil for 10 minutes. Keeps well in the fridge.Posted 6 months agowobbliscottMember
If you have to try that hard to make something nice or even passable then maybe, just maybe we were not intended to eat it. The only possible benefit of Kale is it’s healthy, but you sort of destroy that when you fry in butter and bacon. There are plenty of lovely veggies around that need nothing more than a splash of olive oil, a twist of pepper and a sprinkling of salt and a bit of time in the oven. Why bother with hopless cases like Kale. I give it to the guinea pigs and have something else instead, some nice broccoli perhaps – or just the butter and bacon and cut out the middle man.Posted 6 months agojimjamMember

I think it tastes fine. And there are plenty of things that are less palatable before being prepared in some way.

Not necessarily.Posted 6 months agojohnnersMember
^^ now imagine that without the butter. Revolting isn’t it? Ergo you like butter.
To prove this, try the same with a hot potato, better with the butter isn’t it?
A ryvita? Inedible without a huge wedge of butter.
Porridge, toast, the list goes on.
Now you hang on just a minute here. Porridge? You put butter on porridge?Posted 6 months agoBoba FattMember
