Creamed Kale: A New Twist on an Old Favorite

If you’re looking for a tasty and unique side dish to serve at your next dinner party, why not try creamed kale? Creamed kale is a modern twist on the classic creamed spinach dish that has been around for years. It’s a delicious and nutritious way to add flavor to any meal and is surprisingly simple to make. With its bright green color, crunchy texture, and creamy sauce, kale is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or just starting out in the kitchen, kale is a great dish to try.

While kale and spinach have similar nutritional profiles and both are packed with healthy benefits, kale boosts more iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Manganese so it is a great way to boost your nutritional intake on a day usually packed with foods that are high in calories and fat. Most importantly, it tastes delicious and I would bet most of your guests won’t even be able to tell that your replaced their spinach with kale.
