Kale and other cooking greens are almost exclusively thought of for savory dishes, but this recipe shows the versatility of kale by using it in a surprisingly delicious sweet egg custard dessert. While we use our green kale in this recipe, we encourage you also to experiment and replace the kale with other cooking greens like Swiss chard.

Sautéed Mixed Greens over Cured Tomatoes

This really is two easy recipes: one is for sautéed mixed greens, and the other is for cured tomatoes. Put them together, and it’s a perfect match. We grow many varieties of greens, and just about all of them work well here.

Baby Greens Soup with Coconut Milk, Sweet Curry, and Tamarind

Kale and Beet Salad with Tangerine Balsamic Vinaigrette

We love the combination of kale and beets. The sweetness of the kale with the earthiness of the beets creates a delicious balance. This recipe uses raw shredded beets and also the beet greens, plus some celery for crunch and pecans for a great finish. The vinaigrette is an updated tangerine and balsamic version of a classic honey mustard dressing. 1 bunch of green kale washed, de-stemmed … Continue reading Kale and Beet Salad with Tangerine Balsamic Vinaigrette

Sautéed Green Kale in Coconut Oil with Fresh Fruit and Candied Nuts

We sautéed our green kale in coconut oil recently and it was delicious. The coconut flavor was not at all overpowering, and the sweet green kale flavor really came through. When we experiment with ingredients, we take a familiar recipe, one that we know we like and have used often, and change one ingredient to see how the dish changes.  So, instead of extra virgin olive or … Continue reading Sautéed Green Kale in Coconut Oil with Fresh Fruit and Candied Nuts
