INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: KALE

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

Kale is known for its healthy eating credentials and with good reason. A great alternative to other more ordinary vegetables, as well as heavier ingredients like potatoes, you’ll wonder why the superfood never entered your life sooner.

HOW TO...

Spice it with sumac before baking to make crunchy kale crisps, eat it raw in a curried mango salad, or pair it with beetroot and brown rice for a New Zealand-style bowl of poached eggs in horseradish dressing.

TOP TIP

Instead of discarding tough kale stalks use them as the base of a vegetable stock, along with onions, carrots and celery.
