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.Read more ›
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.
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!
