Kale, Russian seems to be a specialty item, because we have only seen it on sale at a few farmers markets. See more about it below.
More About Russian Kale:
This is a bunch of Russian kale direct from the farmers market (before washing and cleaning). The leaves are softer than the curly variety, but has a slightly stronger flavor, somewhat like a mild mustard green. It can be added raw to green smoothies, and salads, or it can be cooked in a variety of recipes. There is also a red variety of Russian kale. We have not seen Russian kale for sale in the produce section of regular supermarkets, even though we looked for this and and the red variety, and have even asked for it.
We could not find any specific nutritional information for these greens, but the literature we saw says that some sources say it has less calcium, and perhaps a little oxalic acid (which is also in spinach).
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
