Kale, also known as borecole, is one of the healthiest vegetables.  One cup of chopped kale contains just 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and 684% of vitamin K (source).  It also has cancer fighting Phytonutrients and sulforaphane, lutein for healthy eyes, fibers, carotenoids, and a good source of copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus (source).  Kale is a super powerful green food!
But how about the flavor?  This leafy green vegetable is a bit bitter and has a mild earthy flavor, but not as pungent as mustard greens.  Even if you have a doubt, it’s worth giving it a try for the sake of good nutritious value. You may actually enjoy eating it.

Ingredients

  • kale : 3 cup (stalks removed and discarded, thinly sliced leaves)
  • lemon : 0.5 piece (squeezed, save juice)
  • blood orange infused olive oil : 2 Tbsp (You can use extra virgin olive oil and squeeze a bit of orange juice for similar flavor.)
  • champagne mango : 1 piece (diced small, + Kosher salt, Freshly ground black pepper)
