Kale cultivation started almost at the beginning of 2000 BCE, originating in the Asian and Eastern Mediterranean regions. However, the variety of curly-leaved cabbage and flat-leaved cabbage already existed in Greece in the 4th century BC.
Cabbage is native to the Mediterranean region, growing along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts of Europe. So presumably, the Kale and Cabbage originated in Western Europe and the Mediterranean region.
Kale belongs to cruciferous vegetables; cauliflower and broccoli are also a part of this vegetable category. Specifically, Kale comes in various varieties, among which Russian, curly green, and lacinato (also known as dinosaur kale) are the most common ones.
Russian Kale is a red-tipped and curly leaf with a slightly sweet taste, whereas Lacinato Kale has long, narrow leaves, sometimes blue-green. Generally, all types of Kale are widely adaptable, but Russian and Lacinato kale are most commonly used.
To acquire a unique taste in the recipe, try it with mustard greens. Simply pluck the leaves from stems and chop them into small pieces, ideally a bite-sized piece. Since the mustard greens are more perishable and comparatively cook up quickly than Kale, it would be better to stir fry the kale first and then add mustard greens for quick cooking.
