Lately I’ve been eating a lot of the same things. I think they may be my favorite foods but I hate saying I have favorites because I love to eat so many different things.
They are all greens!
I can not get enough kale. When I finish up a bunch I freak out a little bit because I feel like I should ALWAYS have kale on hand. The chewy/crunchiness of it is incredible. It’s so easy to make too. Sometimes I just toss it in olive oil and a little bit of salt and throw it in a pan for a couple of minutes. Other times I toss it in the same ingredients and broil it to make it extra crunchy. (BE CAREFUL! I lit it on fire when I was in the Outer Banks because I was toooo distracted!)
I also like to mix it in with other veggies (eggplant!) or scrambled eggs. Yum.
So refreshing. The peppery, slightly bitter crunch of arugula is awesome. My favorite way to eat arugula is under a tomato salad with a little bit of balsamic vinegar. I also will nibble on a couple of leaves if I open the fridge to find some sort of snack. I find that I always eat arugula and tomatoes on the side of a nice juicy steak.. maybe they are just a nice match.
I guess my guilty pleasures could be SO much worse… but these two greens are heavenly.
Does anyone have any good recipes for arugula or kale? Or a suggestion on how to put them together?
