Info on taste

Kale has a taste similar to that of Brussels sprouts, but much milder. When eaten cooked, it is better to blanch it, which reduces its bitterness, but also decreases its vitamin intake. This is one of the reasons why we often prefer to eat it raw. Kale micro-shoots are less bitter than the adult vegetable and contain a higher percentage of vitamins and minerals. Win-win!

 

What you will want to know

Kale, also known as kale, is a vegetable that comes in the form of branches when it reaches adulthood. Like the majority of crucifers (brassicaceae, the cabbage family), it contains few calories, but a lot of fiber and vitamins. Turnips, rapeseed and watercress are in the same family. Among the nutrients with which it overflows, we note calcium, iron and manganese. In vitamins, mention should be made of A and C in particular. It also contains vitamin B and vitamin K. Kale has exploded in popularity in recent years, particularly because nutritionists recognize its anti-cancer properties and antioxidants in large quantities. It is also attributed with depurative, energizing and aperitive properties. That's why we don't hesitate to say that it is a superfood. As with all micro-shoots, the benefits of those of kale are multiplied when compared with their adult version. By incorporating kale micro-shoots into our smoothies or salads, we multiply the good we do for our health.

 

Conservation

Keep the micro-shoots on slightly moist soil. Eat them or put them in the living fridge on compost when they reach more or less 10 cm. The cold will slow growth until you eat it.

The kale micro-shoot should be refrigerated or consumed when it reaches around 10 centimeters. You can then cut it and keep it in the fridge in plastic bags for two or three days, but it can be stored even longer if you put the whole tray in the refrigerator.
