It's a type of kale that's darker and has flatter leaves than standard curly kale
Also called dinosaur kale.

First of all the recipe is a definite keeper. Lacinato kale is also called dino kale, devils kale, tuscany kale. As Merrill says, it is flatter. Doesn't have the curly ends, and is not purple. We prefer the taste.

Add another name to its aliases: black kale. It should be coming to the market now and will remain available for the winter. For a photo see http://www.drweil.com/drw...
