New Spinach on the Block

Rob recently got a subscription to Hulu on his PS3 so I have been pouring through back-to-back episodes of Modern Family.  In one of the episodes Mitch announces that he thinks that kale should remain a garnish because it is not ready to anchor an entire meal.  After hearing this I got more interested in learning about kale and it’s nutritional properties.  From my (Google) research I learned that kale is chock full o’ cancer preventing anti-oxidents and fiber which can lower cholesterol and heart disease.

It is also easy to prepare and super delicious.  Blanched with a pat of butter and red pepper flakes it made a delicious accompaniment to the filet mignon I prepared the other night.  Even Rob ate every last bit of it up and he is famously known in his social circle for his dislike of vegetables.
