This week’s Star Ingredient is Kale Raab! Kale raab is just the fancy name for the spring flower buds of kale when it bolts (which means goes to seed) in the early Spring. It’s sweet, nutty, tender and crisp. You can eat it raw in a salad, cooked in a pasta dish or mixed with a stir fry. But you better hurry if you want to enjoy it…it has a VERY short season so bring on the raab before it’s gone!
I make pesto out of a lot of things…and today we are using kale raab and arugula!
