We get a whopping large tub of baby Kale at our local Sam's Club. We substitute that for lettuce/spinach in everything: salads, veggies, etc. We even put it into tacos instead of lettuce. Wifey puts a handful into our smoothies. Great mild flavor and texture.

Try as I may, I can't make myself like kale. Odd, because I love most brassicas (including brussels sprouts!). It may be incredibly good for you and very fashionable but I can't get on with it at all.

I used to have an organic veg box delivery and kale always featured in it - yuck! I kept trying to exclude it but it appeared with monotonous regularity.

The farmer has to get rid of it somewhere. And you were elected to be the recipient.

I wouldn't even try ANY greens for the first 68 years olf my life, now I love them. I think that was because until recently, they were served primarily in the south. Growing up, my mother occasionally served canned spinach and I liked it, but never tried fresh.

I know this is a bit late but here is a pic of the soup.

I used to take it up to the stables and hand feed it over the wall to the bull who lived in a nearby field. Contrary to what you hear about bulls, he was a sweetheart.

Don't let that get out. You will ruin their reputation.
