A Sneak Peek Into Kale’s Health Benefits
Rich in vitamins (A, B, C, and K), minerals, and good fats, Kale is considered a superfood, which is low in cholesterol and has proven to prevent cancer, cataracts, and above all, it helps you lose weight more healthily.
Natives to Mediterranean and Asian lands, where it was first grown, Kale is widely used worldwide, making a huge part of the culinary cuisines with only 98 calories in sautéed and 120 calories in creamed Kale.
How to Store This Kale Recipe?
When you have mouths to feed and errands to run with a tight schedule, it is always good to have spare food in the fridge that is not junk. Although you can store sautéed or creamed Kale in an airtight container for 3 days in the refrigerator and up to a month in the freezer, we do not recommend that because stale veggies might not have the same nutritional benefits as the fresh do.
Hence, to save you time and all the kitchen-work hassle, you can chop up and semi-prep the Kale and then store it. This way, you have to sauté it or warm it up and add cream before serving. It saves your time and nutrition.
Tips for Adding More Fun to Kale
- The major reason people dislike Kale is that it tastes bitter. To make the bitterness disappear, always marinade Kale for 24-36 hours in salt and olive oil after cutting the stem.
- If you plan to use raw Kale in salads, cut it into fine thin strips instead of big chunks to make it appealing and taste better.
- To make these kale recipes even better, add in some boiled chickpeas, red beans, or any vegetable you like!
