So college daughter left 1/2 of big bag of kale in fridge and 3 boxes of quinoa as she returned to school today. Never tasted kale, never cooked kale, but I am cheap and don't want to throw it out. What can I do with it that will be tasty? DD said it can be subbed for spinach (creamed kale?). Looks like it needs way more cooking time than spinach. Planning to make big pot of beef mushroom barley soup this weekend. Should I just throw in chopped up kale? What else can I do?
Don't know what to do with 3 boxes of quinoa either. There is just me left in the house, need recipes that refrigerate or freeze well. I am not vegetarian or vegan, so no problem using meat products to help make it tasty. I take both breakfast and lunch to work, perhaps cook up something that can be reheated? Thanks in advance!
