Masala Kale Chips Recipe

03.08.13 by Jackie

Here's a recipe for an inexpensive, super easy and delicious snack. My husband Lulu and I usually love munching on snacks late in the evening and kale chips are a great way to do so guilt-free.

Kale chips are nutritious and low in calories with fewer than 50 calories per serving. I flavored the chips with Indian spices and Meyer lemon zest. You can find a similar recipe in my latest book, Haute Potato, made with waffle potato chips instead.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Raw Kale Salad Recipe Recipe

I made a crisp, raw kale salad with roasted butternut squash, toasted pine nuts and crumbled gorgonzola. It’s a one-dish meal you can make in large batches, pack in tupperware and eat when you're on-the-go. 

I flavored the salad with a yogurt dressing and a touch of gorgonzola for extra flavor. The health-conscious can omit the cheese, of course.

Kale Potato Salad Recipe

Since the girls are on summer break, they've asked to join me in my morning workouts. After our workout is done, I put them to work helping me make lunch. A refreshing smoothie at the end of a jog is all the incentive they need!

Cooking with kids is a great way to instill healthy eating habits. Today we prepared an iron-filled potato and kale salad. We also added sugar snap peas, asparagus, tomatoes and a little cheese.

Kale with Homemade Pickled Ginger Recipe

Kale with pickled ginger is one of the healthiest and tastiest ways to get a meal packed with iron. I made my own pickled ginger and an Asian-inspired salad dressing with lemongrass, miso and sesame oil. The result is the perfect condiment for boiled kale.

The reason I've been trying to make iron-rich meals lately is that my sister-in-law, Sunny, was diagnosed with iron deficiency. It's a fairly common problem that primarily affects women. She had trouble with the iron pills, so it was suggested to us that we make her foods that are rich in iron. Because of this, I've been trying to cook more with kale.

If you have any suggestions, please do share! Sunny will thank you.

Kale with Caramelized Kumquats Recipe

Kale with Caramelized Kumquats

02.07.10 by Jackie

This side dish couldn't be easier to make. Onions and kumquats are slowly caramelized with ginger and agave nectar and added to slightly sautéed kale. What could be better than a dish that's delicious, healthy and simple?

I was inspired to make this dish by a reader. Chef Doreen T. Ross is a culinary artist and consultant from North Carolina. Doreen sent me a recipe suggestion using kumquats (I've asked for recipes using this ingredient) with wilted kale. I've adapted Doreen's recipe and added an Asian twist to it. Sunny and Lulu were my guinea pigs, and they loved it. Merci Doreen!
