Kale Butter


Yea, I went there!

I heard about people making kale butter about a year ago and have been dying to try it ever since (I think I’m meant to be a dietitian!). I finally made it and love it! And, it’s SO easy to make.

Recipe:

–bunch of kale, washed and chopped

–1 cup water

–1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions: Steam the kale, using about 1 cup of water, until it’s tender (took about 8 minutes for me). Blend the kale, 1/2 cup of the water used for steaming and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts in a blender until smooth and enjoy!

I have been spreading this on toasted bread. Let me know if you have other suggestions for how to use it/what foods to try it on!

Just a Few Health Benefits of Kale: Kale has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer nutrients!

    Margaret, remember that food pyramid project we did together? Of course you were meant to be a dietician… πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to try this myself. I’m not a huge fan of the texture of Kale so this might be the trick for me!

    AND, it’s at the top of Whole Foods’ Andes scale as the most nutritious food they have, right?
