We love kale at Blooming Junction, and that’s why we grow three different kinds! Green, purple, and lacinato (Dinosaur) kale. Red and purple varieties have a slightly sweeter taste than green and can be a good place to start if you’re just introducing kale into your meals. And, you really can introduce kale into any meal! Chop some into your morning eggs, massage with oil and vinegar for a salad base, or cook some into your stir fry or pasta dish at dinner time.
Inspired by the bounty of kale that we grow on the farm, we whipped up a kale sausage soup using natural Olympia Provisions chorizo sausage from our natural foods store. This recipe packs in the kale and includes plenty of healthy herbs that you can grow at home!
