One of my favorite cool season vegetables is kale. Not only is it tasty, it’s beautiful in the garden and most varieties are so cold tolerant they can be harvested well into winter. In late summer I direct sow crops for fall harvest and then plant seedlings in spring to enjoy before the weather heats up. Kale is a crisp, sweet green that is high in iron, vitamins A and C, and calcium. The flavor is best right after harvest, but it will keep for a few days in the refrigerator. You can find it at the grocery store, but it never tastes as good as homegrown and it is so easy to grow that you might as well try it. For this recipe the kale is lightly steamed and spiced with garlic, onion, red pepper and lime.
