This traditional kale recipe, aka Grünkohl, is a hearty side dish for many German dinners. Kale is a vegetable with a very earthy taste. It goes great with other hearty dishes. It just needs to be cooked properly! It's great if you buy it canned or jarred. It's so easy to prepare then. If you have fresh kale, check below how to prepare and cook it. If it's not done properly, kale has a tendency to be tough and bitter.
Since kale is such a nutritious and healthy vegetable, it's great to be able to cook it so the whole family will enjoy it.
Blanching is important.
Germans have a great way for enticing their kids to eat these greens. They often mix the cooked kale with mashed potatoes. Really!
Kids will eagerly enjoy their veggies when they are prepared this way.
