Raw kale has an exceptional nutrient profile, with the highest content of lutein of any vegetable, as well as zeaxanthin, antioxidants found in the macula. Kale is also rich in vitamin K, which helps promote bone health and assists the liver in generating blood-clotting proteins. One cup of chopped kale gives you 1,000 micrograms of vitamin K, which is 10 times the suggested daily dose.

Kale Chips
I love it when America obsesses over something and it really takes off. And today, people are going nuts over kale, which is a good thing because kale is an amazing source of vitamin A. Paired with the toasty, sea-mineral accent of roasted nori — itself a nutritional powerhouse of both vitamin A and calcium — it makes a delicious, super-healthy alternative to the standard football-watching fare. With the right amount of seasoning, these are a knockout. Click here to see 'Sweet' Cooking Advice with Sam Talbot.

Raw Shiitake Kale Salad
One night I went to a fabulous event in Boulder hosted by Bauman College. During this evening one of the graduates from Bauman's chef program did a great cooking demo for a raw kale salad with shiitake mushrooms (it had a number of other ingredients as well). The next day, I was determined to make a version of my own. Before that evening, I had not thought of eating raw mushrooms, however, after tasting the Bauman salad, I was sold. So, I picked kale from our garden in the blistering heat and began to concoct the dish below.

kale
Justin Burdett, chef-owner of Local Provisions in the heart of downtown Asheville, N.C., grills whole kale for a hearty, winter vegetable option.To grill the kale, Burdett blanches and shocks whole kale — stems and all. He then coats the kale lightly with olive oil, salt, and pepper before charring it on the grill. Once charred, he removes the kale from the grill and finishes it with lemon juice. The result is hearty kale stalks with a slight char flavor, which is brightened by the acidity from the lemon juice. If you love kale then you should also try making smoothies — trust us, this is a smoothie recipe you’ll love.
