Try as some cookbook authors might (and believe us, they are trying), kale doesn't need any help in the popularity department. We love it massaged in salads, baked into chips, juiced, and blended. Now the kale family is expanding with the availability of Spigarello Broccoli, and we're pretty excited to dig in.
Apparently it's a little more 'vegetal'-tasting than the varieties we're familiar with, but all we need to know is that it tastes great blanched and sauteed. A little olive oil, toss it with some quinoa -- let us know how it goes if you get your hands on some!
