Here you’ll find all the kale recipes.

For the best tasting kale, you should buy kale during the autumn through spring months for peak nutrition and quality. The kale leaves should appear dark in color and should be small to medium in size. You also don’t want any brown or yellow leaves.

There are several varieties of kale; the most popular kale varieties include: curly, dinosaur, and red Russian. Kale stems are woody and practically inedible, so you’ll typically want to make sure that you remove them when using kale in recipes.
