Clean FOOD

Well another topic I'm passionate about, CLEAN EATING. For those who have read previous blogs you all know how passionate I am about healthy eating and organic foods, so i thought i'd share another quick, healthy, nutritious meal. Do you all know the health benefits of kale?  
Excellent source of...
A great antioxidant and rich in beta carotene too ! 

Yes but lets face it at some point it's hard to get creative with it. So here is a fabulous dish the whole family will love.
First off what I like to do is when I buy kale is wash it, strip the stem off,  cut into small pieces and freeze.  It makes life a whole lot easier. 

Ingredients you will need :

  • 1 bunch kale (prepped like I mentioned above)
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2 squash (butter nut)
  • 1 cup grated chedder (no not the orange one, cheddar is actually  like most other cheeses, the orange has coloring in it, so stick to the real thing!)
  • 3 tablespoons of flour 
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • salt and pepper 

How to put it together:
In a deep pan layer kale, onion, grated or sliced squash, salt and pepper, sprinkle a little flour and cheese.
repeat layering till you get to the top. End with cheese and top with squash. Pour the milk over it all.
Bake at 350' for about 20 mins or till you see that it's shrunk down half the height. 
Let stand a few minutes and serve.
E voila !!!

  • quick
  • healthy
  • fun
