You can bring out the best in kale, a highly nutritious leafy green, with this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Kale with Peaches and Walnuts.
Kale, with its huge leaves and colorful stems, needs a little trimming and flavoring before you can chow down on its calcium, cancer-fighting carotenoids and other protective compounds. Slicing the leaves from the stems and parboiling them makes them more tender and ready to absorb the shallots (relatives of garlic and onions) and apple juice flavors.
With a dash of cayenne pepper, salt and pepper, kale morphs into an excellent side dish garnished with sweet peach slices and crunchy walnuts.
