Kale – Lacinato (Tuscan, Dinosaur)

$3.00

.5 lb bunch of our dark green leafed Lacinato Kale. Popular in Italian cuisine, it’s also called Tuscan kale or dino (Dinosaur) kale. The leaves are so hearty that, even when well cooked, they retain a wonderful firm texture, making it a great choice for braising or adding to stews. It’s also sweeter and less bitter than other types of kale and packed with nutrients.

Description

1/2lb of dinosaur kale.

This type of kale is particularly well suited to braising in a bit of broth. Simply heat a pan, add a little bit of broth, then the cleaned and chopped kale, and cover. Cook over a gentle heat until the leaves are wilted and tender. Another simple option is to sauté it in olive oil with garlic and a chili or two if you like. A sprinkle of salt and a squirt of lemon are nice, too.

You can also use the blanched kale leaves as wrappers. Lay them out and fill them with cubed cheese shrimp or chicken, then roll them up and bake the rolls.
