The Great Healthy Kale Solution

I’ve just started be a health freak, and watching my diet. And one of the recommended things to eat being O blood type is kale. As it turns out this stuff is already growing in my garden, what a bonus. I found this recipe and voila, I now eat this side dish every day with my dinner. A great source of nutrients and vitamins, so try it.

Kickin’ Kale:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large bunch of curly kale
  • 2 or 3 lemons
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 small or 3 large cloves of garlic (peeled, smashed and chopped)
  • 1/2 to 1 purple onion, sliced very fine

Method:

  1. Wash and ‘spin’ dry the curly kale.
  2. Remove the stems.
  3. Stack the leaves on top of each other and slice them horizontally into fine strips
  4. Place the strips into a glass or porcelain bowl
  5. Juice the lemons.
  6. Peel and cut the garlic cloves into chunks.
  7. Put the olive oil, lemon, garlic, and salt into the blender and combine on high to make a frothy liquid.
  8. Pour 1/2 the liquid over the top of the kale.
  9. Mix well with salad utensils.
  10. Pour the remaining liquid over the kale and keep turning and mixing with the salad utensils.
  11. Let the mixture sit for at least 2 hours before you eat it as the lemon and olive oil will ‘cure’ the kale so that it becomes much softer and more edible.
  12. Garnish with as many of the onion slices as you like.
