Kale is one of our favourite veg and is the no 1 food on the nutrient density aggregate index as its so packed full of nutrients. Both kale and cabbage are from the brassica family and can have a sulphur like note to them that can mask as bitterness. In these kale recipe and cabbage recipe we really focus on elevate these veg so that they taste fantastic and that everyone wants to eat more of these nutritious power houses!
The kale pesto is so easy to make, use wholemeal pasta as it will be higher in fibre and better for you and to make it lower in fat just substitute half the oil with water so that you use 75ml of water and 75ml of oil thus reducing the added oil by 50%. All our kids love this dish as its super tasty, simple and no one knows that they are eating kale! The Asian style charred cabbage dish is Steves favourite way to eat cabbage – its quick so tasty and really shows how delicious cabbage can be.

Hi. I’d like to try these, can I make them in a dehydrator instead of the oven?
Tried the Kale Pesto recipe – where does the other 50g of Kale after you make the pesto? There’s 100g of kale listed in the recipe then 50g into the pesto then no mention of the other 50g. I put the whole lot into the pesto- it tasted very nice tho the texture a little craggy which I felt might have been the cashews- will try pine nuts next time.
