Red Kale

Red Kale
(Red Kale) Red kale is a mild tasting member of the cabbage family. The smaller, more tender leaves can be eaten raw in a mixed green salad.  The larger tougher leaves are usually steamed or cooked in soups, casseroles, or stir-fries. We also eat some of the tougher leaves raw in our vegetable "smoothies", which we make in our Vita-Mix.  Like other cruciferous vegetables, red kale has been shown to help protect against cancer, particularly for those on a vegan diet.  Red kale has also been shown to help protect against macular degeneration, an eye disease.  Select red kale which is firm and has dark reddish green leaves. We could not find any specific nutritional information for red kale, but it should be similar to the curly green kale, except that the red color would indicate the presence of lutein.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
