We love almost all vegetables, but we don't get this (for us) recent raw kale love. We get that it's a nutrient-rich green, but raw is just too chewy, even chiffonade'd. Even stewed or steamed, it's a challenge, and the stems are forever a serious chew even after a long saute/steam treatment.

Tried the baked chips but feel that the nutrients must be lost in the process, so why bother.

We hate smoothies, so don't go there, please.

Can we just make Kale broth and get the nutrients to add to soup?

Any thoughts appreciated.
