Kale is a superfood which is similar to spinach. Kale is considered to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet and is full of vitamins A, K and C.
Kale is a vegetable from the cabbage family but has none of the “boring” in it. It has green curly leaves and, luckily for us, is easily available in South Africa.
Kale is extremely versatile and can replace spinach in most recipes. Use it to make salads, stir-frys, pestos and pizza toppings.
At the 2012 Eat In DStv Food Network Small Produce Awards, Earthshine, a Cape Town health shop won the innovation award for their kale chips. Talk about a healthy snack!
