Kale is king these days. It has become the number one sought green vegetable lately. Before it got famous, they're used as decoration on a platter of food.

What a waste. Just learn how to cook kale and eat it! It will make you pretty and healthy inside and out.
Here's a very easy recipe for Kale
Lacinato Kale also known as Elephant or Italian Kale
1 bunch or organic garden kale (or the ones from the supermarket)
1 garlic bulb (love them garlic)
1 yellow onion
Tamari Soy Sauce to taste
a bit of oil for stir-frying
2 tomatoes quartered
a small piece of ginger (smashed or grated)
Wash and break the kale in fairly large pieces separating the stems if you wish. You can discard the stems or reserve them for making kale juice. You can also dice them and include these stems in your stirfry - your choice!
Saute the chopped garlic, ginger and onion in a bit of oil using a wok or a large frying pan until cooked but not burnt. The kale will be bulky but will shrink considerably when it's all wilted. So, you'll need a large frying pan.
If using the stems, saute them first for a few minutes until tender. Add the chopped tomatoes. Then, follow with the kale leaves. Saute until all wilted and not overcooked.
Season with the Tamari Soy Sauce and cracked pepper.
Serve hot over steamed rice or as a side dish for anything you wish. Enjoy!
I like mine served with different types of rice. It went perfect with yellow rice and beans and this meal was truly filling, protein filled and super delicious!
A cup of kale has been recognized as more protein-rich than any other green veggies out there and even beats a hunk of animal flesh and muscle that carnivores prefer for their protein source.
While Kale is widely abundant in the summer, you can find them in the produce isle of supermarkets near you so you can start cooking them and include this veggie on your vegetarian diet.

My name is Pura. That's pronounced as Poorra with a short 'ooh' sound and an emphasis on the 'r'. Italians call me Poora which is close enough. Spanish folks also call me Poora which is about right. Here in America, they call me Pyura or Pawra - it's a cruel world. Hmm. My mother called me Nene, which means baby girl in Filipino.
