Kale is probably my favorite vegetable in the entire world. Besides being delicious, it is one of the most nutrient dense vegetables you can find. One serving has 210% of the RDA of Vitamin A and 130% of your daily Vitamin C requirements.
Last month I went to Yardbird Southern Table & Bar with awesome South Florida based paleo blogger The Curious Coconut (Amanda Torres) and Paleo Porn (Marla and Jeff Saris, Chicago). I was so surprised how easy it was to talk to these guys, whom I had never met. In the future I think Amanda and I will try to get a Miami Paleo group together for a meet-up night.
The food was TO DIE FOR. They have a great gluten-free menu that they don’t advertise online but have printed out for any guest who has a gluten intolerance. We didn’t feel depraved at all because it was pretty much the same menu but with alterations. One of the sides we got was their Sauteed Southern Kale. Ever since, I have been obsessed with recreating it! Now, I actually know a few people that work at Yardbird so I could have commissioned a culinary espionage mission, but that would be cheating and taking away all the fun. Besides, after a few tries I think I’ve come up with a version that’s not just as good, but actually better than the one I ate that night.
