Some trends can be silly. You’ve had some clothing or a hairdo that you would just prefer to never see again — and you are so very happy Facebook wasn’t around when you indulged.

Other trends are significant and even good for you. Kale is one of those. All of a sudden, kale is popping up everywhere. In restaurants, in grocery stores and the farmers markets, and on book shelves. If you go to Amazon and search for “kale” there are 123 hits today, with certainly more tomorrow. And most of these books are recent, published just in the last year.

So, if want to find excellent kale recipes, maybe make your own kale chips because the Whole Foods price reminds you of gold and silver, where do you turn? Which of those new kale cookbooks really gives you a bevy of wonderful recipes that you will enjoy and return to?

I’m intrigued by Let Them Eat Kale! by Julia Mueller from Skyhorse Publishing. A first, and a minor reason, is that I do believe Marie Antoinette unfortunately was misquoted. Again, that was a before-Facebook event so we’ll never know.

What we do know is that author Julia Mueller has worked with dedication to fashion an array of recipes, from breakfast to dinner’s main dishes, that employ kale as a key ingredient. Sometimes as the dominant ingredient, sometimes simply as an addition to integrate the nutritional values that make kale such a useful food.

In her Introduction, Julia presents kale from multiple aspects, explaining how that very basic and bitter taste can infiltrate into your culinary life. Julia’s a convert, preferring kale to other greens in her salads. If you read my review of Taste, you know that there are genetic issues at play here: while humans normally avoid bitter foods, we have evolved to go for the healthy ones.

I was very disappointed. It was a good idea to see how versatile a popular addition to a healthy diet can be. But Julia Mueller needs an editor or at least a friend who is a novice cook willing to try her recipes exactly as they are written.
Did she mean to use the ear of corn with the kernels removed?
If step 2 is to preheat the oven to 400 degrees, why wait to use it for the two hours the ingredients sat in the refrigerator, and then put the oven to 375?
If you are making burrito, wouldn't it be good to tell how to assemble them?
Why not start the instructions with the process that takes longer and then the one that could be done while the first cooks?
If she lists 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese in the ingredients, why do the instructions say to add grated parmesan?
Please! The ingredients she is working with are wonderful and there is an imaginative combination of flavors.
But beware: this is a book for experienced cooks willing to finish the process of recipe writing that the author and published did not do.

I have been following Julia’s blog for over a couple years now and have always loved her passion for produce and healthy veggies. Her vegetable –rich dishes are inspiring and simply beautiful. It was no surprise when she came out with this cookbook.. She uses her same “veggie packed” recipe philosophy in this book but makes a greater emphasis on healthy kale and she does it so creatively and deliciously! If you hate kale, this book will show you how to ENJOY this green and if you already love kale, you're going to be in for a treat.

This book is full of 75 amazing recipes that literally transform this tough green into delicious dishes. Recipe are simple and also many are gluten-free, vegetarian or dairy-free. Every single recipe is packed with healthy proteins and other great vegetables.

If you are looking for more ways to enjoy kale, or just need some inspiration on how to get started using this green, this cookbook is for you! And if you need any motivation to buy this book, one look at the authors blog (www.theroastedroot.net) will make up your mind!

I love this cookbook! As someone who knows she should eat more kale, but had no idea what to do with it, this book was very useful to me. There is a lot of information on the types of kale as well as how to prepare and cook it at the beginning of the book. The recipes are wonderful. The soup that I tried was fantastic, my husband loved it, as did it. I can't wait to make more of the recipes in this book. All recipes in the book are gluten free.

My spouse laughed at having a whole cookbook devoted to one vegetable, but I am nowhere near as creative in the kitchen as Julia Mueller. Nice range of recipes, with no flops in the handful I have made so far. Recipes include: breakfast dishes, appetizers & sides, salads, soups, stews, main dishes, salsas and spreads. There is also general information on the types of kale and how to work with it. The creamy sweet potato and kale soup is wonderful!

I love this book! It's beautifully photographed and has so many approachable ways to tame a bitter green like kale. All of the recipes I've tried so far have been delicious and have even gotten my kids' approval. The greens pizza crust is my favorite so far. I was floored at how good the taste and texture were. Can't wait to try more!
