Il cavolo ricciuto: Kale, a Vegetable to Discover Over and Over Again
Considered one of the oldest cabbages, this European vegetable, which is still very popular in Italy, is full of nutrients (fibre, vitamins A, B, C and K, potassium…), and has many antioxidants that make it a food of choice for preventing certain cancers.
Kale is rich in soluble fibre. Making kale part of your diet can also help lower bad cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health. Did you know that kale is high in calcium? That makes it a smart choice for bone health.
If you enjoy it uncooked, kale simply needs a little tenderness: gently massage it with olive oil for a superb taste experience. Dried kale leaves are nutritious and tasty chips. An original afternoon snack, kale chips are even more delicious when sprinkled with sea salt and maple sugar.
Kale is simply delizioso!
