Keep Your Kale Fresh: Quick and easy way to freeze Kale and keep it from going to waste

KALE STORAGE

Hello my luvs!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend – spending time with friends and family and eating delicious food.  I certainly did.  As we prepare for the week ahead, I wanted to share with you this awesome tip that my amazing Aunt (who happens to be a 6 feet tall former runway model – see photos below) shared with me during our family Turkey Day Feast…

As we shared our love for kale, I was complaining about not being able to keep my kale fresh and having to throw so much of it away since I travel every week for work.  It’s nearly impossible to use a whole batch.  HOWEVER, she showed me the cool way to store kale according to serving sizes which alleviates my problem.  It goes like this:

  1. Wash kale
  2. Remove the large stems
  3. Place kale in a plastic sack/bag
  4. Separate the kale into the serving size you want with a twisty tie
  5. Tie off each serving size
  6. Freeze

When you are ready to eat the kale, simply break off the end piece.  It’s super easy to throw the serving into your Vitamix or Blender to make a green drink  or to let it thaw and cook it.  Yay! Stuff like this makes me want to be a vegetarian again!  I  hope you enjoy this tip as much as I did.

Happy meal planning for the week!

Lots of luv, Brit
