I eat kale a lot. I also really like quinoa. ;-)

Noel, OT but do you watch Orphan Black?

When we go there, I'd like to hear your suggestions for prepping Quinoa.

I'd like to know, too. Let's go there {#emotions_dlg.w00t}

Sydney and Noel, I'm just now seeing your posts. I, too, make a lot of cold and hot salads with quinoa, similar to what Irshgrl already posted. I usually add lemon or lime, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Veggies that I add are usually whatever I happen to have, and have included some of the following: spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, red onion, zucchini, peas, asparagus, etc. Chickpeas, too. Also, I usually add basil or cilantro or sometimes cumin. Sometimes I'll just cook quinoa in a vegetable broth. I've been wanting to try adding feta, but haven't yet. It does sound really good.

Another way I sometimes eat quinoa is for breakfast - I add almond milk and ceylon cinnamon, and sometimes walnuts. I like it. :-)

Re: KALE: Like It Or Leave It?

I love kale- one of my top green vegetables. However- it has to be fresh. I don't like it prepackaged in the bags or frozen. One vegetarian tv cook showed me the secret. Only use the leaves. I remove the stems and only use the leafy part. I stirfry it with onions, mushrooms, grilled tofu and sometimes potatoes.

Re: KALE: Like It Or Leave It?

There was a buffet-style restaurant near where I work that always had Kale. I would always take some, because I figured it had vitamins, but never developed a taste for it. But, I see it can be "doctored up" with some nice ingredients, so I think I'll try making it at home.

On 6/9/2014 wookie said: I like it any which way it's cooked. We usually steam a big mess of it in a little chicken broth. It might be a regional thing, but Kale has been sold in grocery stores here for decades. They used to sell it loose, in a big bin. I've noticed recently, you either have to buy it in a bag, or small bunches. No one sells it loose anymore.

You don't know where to shop.

Re: KALE: Like It Or Leave It?

I've heard that it's bitter. Haven't tried it, and wouldn't know what it is if I saw it, lol.........I'm not a fan of veggies anyway......
