So I am not a fan of kale.  I don’t like it in my smoothies and I don’t love it in salads either.  But my girl said its really good cooked, so I ran into these kalettes and thought, this might be a good way to try kale again.  I live for a steamable veggie.   This one is nice because you can season, then steam in the microwave.  I threw a seasoning blend in the bag, sealed it up and steamed for three minutes.  Then sautéed in olive oil and butter for about three minutes and it was perfect!  I found these at krogers and I must say they have renewed my faith in kale!
