Tis the season for kale. Kale is one of those naturally gluten free super nutritious foods; according to my family it is delicious as well. It is our green of choice for many a dinner as you can see from all of the gluten free kale recipes below.
Kelly over at celiacchicks.com just posted about kale chips (which I love) and inspired me to get this long awaited kale post launched. Here goes…

For those of you looking for inspiring sites to introduce you to interesting, healthy new foods and products, I must recommend Renegade Kitchen. I met Dan of Renegade recently when we both spoke on a panel at the BOCO conference. He is an enthusiastic food activist that was much fun to connect with. Be sure to take a look at his site!
If you’re in Denver this weekend I will be signing books in the Ohgave booth at the American Dietetic Association’s EXPO this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Colorado Convention Center. Check out the book tour page for more info.

I love how kale holds up in soups – for the most part, it gives much better texture than spinach. I eat tons of raw spinach – I don’t know why but I seem to crave it. I agree that kale is another fabulous super-food we can’t live without. I love your illustrated tutorial on how to clean and store kale – I haven’t been doing that but I am going to try it.
I know I’ve said this here before but while we’re on kitchen tips – I started using glass jars at your recommendation a couple of months ago for almost everything and LOVE it. I freeze soups in pint jars to send with my husband for lunch. My pantry is now full of glass jars. My husband loves homemade spinach dip and just last night he was saying how much fresher it tastes when I store it in jars. I even put our milk into jars and I am amazed at how it stays so fresh and delicious.
I love kale as well! I’m already looking forward to next spring when I can start growing it in my garden (you’ve inspired me!).
I love kale! That photo of the kale with cranberries and pine nuts looks delicious!
OK, help! I also live in Boulder and would like to grow kale. So far, not much luck. What’s the secret for growing it?

I am so glad to learn you will be at the ADA EXPO. Can you tell us specifically where you’ll be on the 18th? It is so huge, I’d hate to miss you.
Kale = daily staple.
I love kale…I recently made it into a gratin with thickened coconut milk (I bet any nut or seed milk would work), it was delicious.

Yum–dairy free kale gratin! Would love the recipe for that. Have you tried the new fresh So Delicious Coconut milk? I’m looking forward to cooking with it.
