Making E the A to Z....K is for kale

Kale - recently touted as this amazing superfood with all kinds of good stuff - flavanoids and anti-oxidants and vitamins K and C. The problem is it tastes awful. I have tried it steamed, put it in soups, sauteed in bacon fat, roasted into chips. And every single time our family has singularly said "Blech!"

Then we found this little beauty:

And we ate it raw. And all was good.

* While it is still not 'loved' by E, I would say she tolerates it and eats it last. If she makes too much of a fuss about it, I remind her that she used to eat leaves off our maple tree, and these are very much like that.
