Kale may not be everyone’s go-to green veg for a stir-fry or crispy salad, mostly due to its bitter taste and tough texture – but there are ways around this.
Massaging kale before you eat it
Wash the kale and after rinsing it, massage the leaves with your hands. This will help in tenderising it and making it more palatable. Don’t be shy to add your dressing and massage the flavour into the leaves.
Always remove the stems
When eating raw, the stems are tough and chewy.
Don’t be afraid to cook the leaves
Kale wilts far less than spinach and can be great in soups, savoury bakes and eggs.
