You've got kale!

Originally uploaded by TheTurducken
I picked up my first CSA box today. It came with strawberries, lettuce, beets, and two kinds of kale. Strawberries are easy. Lettuce is also easy - you make salads. Of course, then I had to buy more vegetables, because lettuce alone isn't much, and I don't think kale mixes it up a lot. Beets I have only met pickled; these are baby beets, and apparently the whole beet plus green can be tastily and easily cooked, at least at this age. It's the two kinds of kale (Russian and Siberian) that worry me. I have one recipe that Lisa suggested, and the gentleman from the CSA recommended a soup with tomato and chicken broth. I'll report back if I have any successful kale experiments.
