Kale – health booster!

When most people think about kale they think “bitter”, “gross” and other words a 5 year old may use to describe any sort of vegetable their parents are trying to force upon them. But wether you’re cooking for  a chid or yourself, there is a way of making kale taste amazing!

Kale is more full of nutrients than any of its cruciferous  cousins like cabbage and broccoli. Loaded with vitamin C, K, calcium and sulforaphane (a potent anti cancer compound) it is sure to boost your immune system as well as fulfill your basic nutrient requirements.

Sulforaphane is especially present when you chop kale and stir-frying it doesn’t destroy the compound, whereas boiling it or steaming it does. Luckily, stir frying also makes kale taste less bitter than when you boil or steam it, so double bonus!
