Besides getting a lot of kale in the share, I also Upicked a bunch of it! So I'm having a kale-themed week.

Last night for dinner I made sundried tomato pesto with basil from the farm, and a raw kale salad. For the raw kale salad I massaged a bunch of kale with olive oil and salt, then mushed in 1 avocado, then sprinkled it with lemon juice.

Tonight I am planning on making a thai basil stirfry (thai basil from the farm) with zucchini, cabbage, peas and bunching onion from the share. Maybe with some tofu, with a different raw kale salad (this one with a dressing made in a food processor of equal parts lemon juice and olive oil, and a ton of garlic)

Tomorrow I am planning on making a chard curry loosely based on this recipe: http://www.ethnicindiancuisine.com/malabar_spinach_curry_swiss_chard_recipe.htm and more raw kale with the dressing made of tahini, nutritional yeast and soy sauce.

Friday kale split peas and Saturday tofu saag with kale, both recipes from vegandad.blogspot.com.

YAY KALE.
