2 Amazing kale recipes

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Kale seems to be popping up in more and more recipes and restaurants around town. Not only is it tasty in a salad, but it's also considered a "superfood" because it's a rich source of vitamins and minerals that are essential to protecting your health.

Registered dietitian Maya Nahra of IntentfulChef.com showed Tara Hitchcock and Scott Pasmore two great recipes featuring kale.

Citrus Kale Salad

1 bunch lacinato kale, shredded/ chopped
1 bunch cilantro
1 cup raw, unsalted chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cranberries
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 orange
3 to 4 Tbsp. olive oil
Unrefined sea salt

Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Toss to combine and enjoy! (This salad is scrumptious for the next few days!)

Kale & Potato Hash with Chicken Sausage

1 bunch regular green leafy kale
1 bag (2 to 3 cups) frozen hash browns
3 fresh chicken sausages
2 Tbsp. horseradish (optional)
1 medium shallot, minced
Freshly ground pepper
Unrefined sea salt
Extra-virgin olive oil

Pour the frozen bag of hash browns in a bowl mixed with chopped raw kale.

In a separate bowl, mix horseradish, shallot, pepper and sea salt. Add to the chopped kale and potatoes; stir to combine.

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the kale/potato mixture, spread into an even layer and cook, flipping like a pancake when one side is browned, about 12 to 15 minutes total.

Once that is cooked, put onto a large serving plate and cook up the chopped sausages until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Spoon on top of kale and potato hash and serve!
