I have just readed an article about an American woman who came to live in France and couldn't find a vegetable called kale that she used to eat there. Actually, nobody in France (and in Belgium) knows what it is. Is it really common and famous in the US or is it a rare vegetable ?

It seems to have many benefits for the health but I am always suspicious when one speaks about a kind of miracle aliment. I guess that a various food is enough to get the benefits of what food can provide.

When you cook cabbage, Kale, etc, you should really use the water to make the gravy as it will be rich in Iron; some nutritionists used to recommend drinking the water after it had cooled down.

Here's something to look for if you see a branch of Tesco.

Of course it's a vegetable!

Hi Domiinique, Robert is absolutely right, this applies to any veg
you boil up, use the residue in a gravy or sauce, whatever, they
are full vitamins.

I grew up eating a lot of kale soup, which is made with kale, barley, potatoes and seasonings, in a broth made from a hambone. It was a staple food item with the older Lithuanian community here in the coal region, and as Brian stated, very yummy! Lately I've seen kale in the supermarket in small bags of dried, seasoned chunks, selling as a health food type snack....
