Kale has been a lifesaver during my Whole30 days. My favourite (quickest and easiest) way to use it is mixed into chicken broth - a delicious and quick mid-week meals. Here 's the recipes...
Recipe #1 Maria's Chicken Broth with Kale and Coconut Oil:
Directions: Boil up a chook (add a little salt and pepper to the stock). Once this is ready (an hour or so later) get a smaller saucepan ready to prep your single-serve of soup. Keep the rest of the stock in the fridge (or freezer) for quick soups all week long.
Fill a small saucepan with stock (enough to fill your soup bowl)
Add some boiled chicken pieces
Chop some raw garlic (I like about 1/2 a clove, but I'm a bit strange like that)
Add a bunch of herbs (your pick)
Chop and add Kale
Add broccoli/snow peas (any greens go nicely in this)
Stir in a tablespoon (or less) of Coconut Oil
Add a dash of Sesame Oil to taste (optional)
Once the greens have just cooked through, serve immediately and sprinkle in freshly chopped spring onion.
Recipe #2 A sneaky Kale Snack:
Place washed and dried kale leaves (not the stems) on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle sea salt. Bake on high for 10-15 min until crispy. Very addictive!
