Kale is not always the most popular green vegetable, maybe because of its strong cabbage taste and somewhat of a tough texture? It is highly nutritious with powerful antioxidant properties and high levels of beta carotene, vitamin K and vitamin C. In the effort to eat more healthy, I chose a variety of kale called "Dinosaur Kale" it is said that its leaves resemble the tough scaly skin of reptiles. Since its very similar to cabbage it should be cooked the same way, I washed, cut and wilted the leaves with garlic, olive oil and a splash of good vinegar.
