Tuscan Kale
Admittedly, I have been obsessed with kale lately. There is a dish at one of my favorite breakfast places, Fresh Café, that serves one of the most delicious meals that brilliantly showcases kale. I was hooked. Not only is this one of the prettiest of greens around, it’s ridiculously healthy for you. Bonus! There are a few different types of kale, including the more popular curly kale, which has a dark green color and rich peppery taste. The kale that I used for this recipe is called Tuscan kale and has a beautiful, soft flavor, bursting with green healthy goodness. As part of the cruciferous family, kale is most closely related to wild cabbage and has similar health benefits to broccoli, cauliflower, and collard greens… all of which I love as well! Inspired by my love for anything crispy and salty, I instantly thought of grabbing my new favorite ingredient to make chips. What came of it was a crispy, savory, and absolutely perfect substitute for potato chips on movie night. The crunchy sound that they make drives me giddy! Try it for yourselves, I promise that if you’re a veggie fan like me, you’ll go crazy for these crispy treats!

Merguez, Kale, and Sweet Potato Frittata
Whether you're entertaining two or 10 around the holidays, it's hard to beat a frittata when it comes to serving up a hearty and healthy breakfast.  Akin to a large, flat (i.e. unrolled) omelette, frittatas are the perfect brunch item, in my book. It's a vehicle for all sorts of toppings, here salty and spicy merguez sausage, rich green winter kale, chunks of roasted sweet potato, and delicate caramelized onions. All of the ingredients can be prepped in advance, so all you need to do is mix the eggs and add the ingredients about 20 minutes before you want to eat.  This recipe serves two, but it can be easily doubled or tripled to feed your group. Just use a larger sauté pan and be sure to cook the frittata until the center is just set — it will certainly take longer in the oven. Serve with toasted slices of hearty farm bread, fresh butter, and jam. Click here to see Lazy Sunday Brunch Recipes.

I’ve been riding the kale train for what seems like forever, despite my belief that it's a little overdone. What’s not to love about kale? It’s a nutritional bang for your buck and a delicious one at that. When I got a request from a coworker to make a kale salad, my first thought was gosh no, kale salads are so 2012, the Internet is flooded with them, and I’m not sure it can handle many more. Well here is one more. This is for all those people who feel no shame about climbing aboard the kale train — y’all are in for one heck of a ride because this salad is pretty awesome. The dressing with roasted beets has a little honey so that it’s sweet and smoky, and cuts any bitterness the kale may have. It’s a lot different than my go-to kale salad which usually consists of loads of garlic, ginger, lemon juice, and pepper flakes.

Crispy Truffled Kale Chips Recipe
Kale is one of my all-time favorite greens (although, honestly, how many people really keep a list of their favorite greens in mind?) This robust, leafy vegetable is extremely versatile and packed with flavor. Unlike with some hearty greens, such as collards and Swiss chard, kale is delicious both cooked and raw. In this particular recipe lacinato kale is baked up into crispy, delectable chips. Try not to get too addicted.  Click here to see The Best Kale Recipes You've Ever Tried.

Spicy Kale and Lemon Israeli Couscous
Couscous: the food so nice, they named it twice. Mmmm couscous... it’s such a great ingredient for all sorts of dishes, like this fun little salad I’ve put together. I’ve made several types of couscous salads before, but this one is my favorite. Even with very few ingredients, this dish packs a punch of flavor! It’s a perfect side dish or is great as a quick lunch. I’ve been eating more and more kale. Why wouldn’t I? It’s delicious and ridiculously healthy for you! And with the addition of loads of lemon and chile and creamy goat cheese, I could eat this salad day-in, day-out. The name, couscous, itself means well-rolled, well-formed, and rounded. And that’s just what these little pearly grains look like, well-rounded little balls of pasta! Perfect shape and size to mix with any other ingredient. And without any further ado, here's the recipe!

Rigatoni with Tuscan Kale, Black Trumpet Mushrooms, and Sausage
OK, I’ll admit, I was inspired to make this because black trumpet mushrooms were on sale. But, you can definitely make this with whatever mushrooms you like or have on hand and it would be just as good. The same thing goes for the pasta — any shape you can poke with a fork will do nicely — I just happen to like rigatoni. The Kale gives this dish a warm rustic feel.  I’m no nonna, but here are the things that I think really matter: Brown the sausage well, be nice to the mushrooms, don't overcook the pasta, and season as you go. Enjoy! Click here to see The Best Kale Recipes You've Ever Tried.
