Curly Kale Recipe – with Habanero Chili Pepper
We all know by now just how amazing Kale is for our health but sometimes I feel it can be a little boring and bland. No more, my friends, this Curly Kale recipe is full of flavor with a kick from the Habanero chili.
You can, of course, use any chilli pepper, however, I love the perfumed flavour of the Habanero.
Contrary to the belief that raw vegetables are better than cooked, Kale and spinach, amongst others, actually gain goodness from the cooking process.
So, try it out, you have nothing to lose! Let me know what you think!
