Krazy Kale

Kale pesto and goat cheese pizza

Had anyone heard about Kale until the last year or so? I love leafy greens but this one had somehow escaped my attention until it became a trend food. Now all the major supermarkets stock it. It was only 4 months ago when I asked a leading retailer for some and I was told there was no demand. Well hello! Not anymore – kale chips, braised kale, kale salad, kale in green smoothies and pesto all promise life changing wholesome goodness. Not all the 7mouths in our home are keen on the curly green thing. I am trying to grow it at the moment and between keeping the water up to each little plant in the soaring heat, I think the snails are winning.
But if I can grow it successfully this year I am determined to find more ways to slip it into our diet, in a kid friendly kinda way. You know what I mean?
