Spotted over the weekend: Beautiful and delicious organic lacinato kale at one of Dr. Graf’s favorite markets, North Shore Farms in Port Washington, Long Island.
Lacinato kale, or dinosaur kale, has a longer and narrower leaf with a softer texture than regular curly kale. Combined with its sweeter taste, lacinato kale is great to use for salds, smoothies, soups and stews. It’s also frequently used in Tuscan cuisin!
So why is it called dinosaur kale? It’s simple! The surface of the leaf is bumpy, resembling the skin of a dinosaur!
