    Not knowing what kale was, I was surprised when I found out which vegetable it is. In The Netherlands it is a very popular winter veggie. The Dutch traditional meal 'stamppot' is very often eaten with (curly) kale as well. We call it boerenkool (farmer's cabbage). It consists of mashed patatoes, mixed (and mashed) with raw kale. Anything can be added to make it more tasty, like nuts, raisins, tomato, cheese. I couldn't find an English recipe of it, but it is not very difficult to make. If you do want some help, I'm happy to translate/write a recipe for you!

    I would recommend not frying or baking the kale because the heat eliminates a big portion of the nutrients. Kale is great in a fruit smoothie which masks the bitterness. I am looking forward to this Guide to Healthy Living and Eating section.

      Great suggestion Juan! I always think of fruit and celery for smoothies, but kale is a great suggestion--and having it raw without all the chewiness and bitterness is definitely way more healthy.
