How many ways can you use kale puree? So far, we’ve tried kale pancakes, kale on toast, and egg salad kale. The kale pancakes were a hit. We’ll need to keep working on the spread and egg salad idea but it’s doable. I ate it, but no one else was too excited to try. We need to work on presentation. For the pancakes, we used a basic pancake recipe and added about 6 or 7 heaping tablespoons of kale puree (made ahead of time and frozen for later use – see blog “Karen’s Challenge: Quick, Healthy Meals in 10 Minutes). The pancakes had a hint of green, a light green freckled throughout, but the kale taste was barely noticeable. Why ever have just plain pancakes again! I can’t wait to try pumpkin pancakes. Why not spinach or carrot or sweet potato pancakes? We need a pancake challenge! I’ll also need to master a clean eating pancake recipe. Recommendations? Did I mention Karen grinds her own flour?
I should take this opportunity to give credit where credit is due. Liz, my sister-in-law, is the real master chief. She is the nanny this summer and has accepted all my crazy, clean eating ideas in stride. Thanks, Liz!
