15 Kale Recipes

A delicious collection of 15 kale recipes from food bloggers | gimmesomeoven.com

Hey there, it’s Hayley with this week’s roundup.  And today we’re talking about that oh-so-trendy dark leafy green — kale!

Kale’s been around for years and years, but in the past decade or so, it has made a huge comeback.  And now it’s like that new cool kid in town that everyone wants to be friends with. Kale gets us excited about eating healthy!  It’s the green in our green juice, it sneaks its way into our stir-frys, it’s the green goodness in our creamy soups, and salads have never looked better. Heck, we even dress those leaves up and roast them into submission so we can enjoy a healthy alternative to potato chips!

Well luckily, unlike acid wash jeans and feathered hair, we have a feeling that kale is more than a passing trend.  So since it’s still in season, we thought we would “hail the kale” today by sharing 15 recipes that feature some of the tastiest, healthiest, creative ways to enjoy this leafy green. From a classy pesto upgrade and a festive fall pizza, to a pasta salad that would make an Italian grandma weep — these are some recipes you’re going to want to make, asap.  So grab that delicious dark green, and get cookin’!

Kale, yeah!

  1. I’ve been looking for ways to eat more kale, and this post has given me tons of ideas! :)

  2. Glad you posted this. I used to just make myself eat kale raw for health reasons. I’m starting to realize that it is not tasty that way. after gaining 10 pounds I felt a little guilty so crammed down the kale. 

    • We’re glad you dig the roundup Laura! It’s so easy to get in a rut with eating the same thing cooked (or in your case not cooked) the same way. We hope you enjoy the inspiration! :)

  3. Thank you SO much for sharing one of my recipes <3
    A great round up with a lot of inspiration.

  4. Watching your website for the kale recipe like all 15 I will be making all 15 I rate all 15 10 Stars
