Gravy. That's another thing that makes crappy stuff taste good!

I remember a school trip to an arable farm my school made many years ago. We were shown around and there was quite a bit of acreage set aside for kale. I'd never even heard of it. "What's kale?" I asked. "Food for cows," the farmer replied.

Apparently people eat it now. Bizarre.

Stick it in the oven at 100c for 30 mins, drizzle with olive oil and some sea salt before you put it in. It comes out far more palatable than when it went in, and slightly resembles that seaweed you get at the Chinese. I eat five platefulls every week. It is very good for you.

I add a drizzle of oil to a pan heat and fry the kale for about a min then add a few table spoons of water and put the lid on for 10 mins to steam.  Once done take the lid off and let it boil dry stir occasionally.

I get the same results as you tastes a lot better (for kale) and again is similar to the crispy seaweed you get from the Chinese

I cannot believe this thread. :ROFL:

The seaweed from the Chinese is actually cabbage............

Kale is fabulously tasty.........simply boiled even......

Some vegetables are so much better with the right accompaniment or the right recipe.

Asparagus with a garlic mayonnaise , Jerusalem artichokes parboiled and then fried with garlic, tomatoes etc

Cook okra the right way and it is heavenly...........if you just boil it it is sort of disgusting....... :ROFL:........

Now to the dreaded cauliflower. Guys and gals, it also can be heavenly. Parboil it, dry it and shallow fry it until brown and delicious; serve with a lemon, olive oil, garlic and chilli paste vinaigrette , eaten hot or if there is any left cold the next day.

This is served best in a wonderful fried vegetable feast of all sorts. A plate of potatoes fried a bit like patatas bravas but with ginger and garlic and spices, a plate of dried and fried aubergine, long chilli peppers fried with ground coriander and garlic , blistered brown and tasty etc etc, tomatoes grilled for fun..........

Middle eastern fry up..........to rival the meat version. :)

Nigel Slater has a recipe for cauliflower I am going to test out.

Carrots? They're OK when cooked and grated carrot in stuff I can tolerate.

Raw carrot sticks? Fuck off.

Juice them.

Serve cold.

Utterly delicious. Another Middle Eastern delight.

If cauliflower is delicious why hide its taste with, and I quote, "lemon, olive oil, garlic and chilli paste vinaigrette" or, and I quote once again, "ginger and garlic and spices, a plate of dried and fried aubergine, long chilli peppers fried with ground coriander and garlic , blistered brown and tasty etc etc, tomatoes grilled for fun"?

I'm sure those dishes are delicious but it ain't the cauliflower that makes them so.

I know the seaweed from the Chinese is cabbage.

It's all a matter of personal taste. Boiled Kale is disgusting to my pallete. As is spinach. Someone seved me creamed spinach once, and  almost puked over the table. I prefer spinach raw.
