So last week I bought bok choy, sweet potatoes and curly kale. These are vegetables that I don't usually buy. In fact to tell the truth, I don't think I've ever bought them before. The sweet potatoes proved perfectly acceptable in soup. I will try them cooked in other ways to add as a veg to eat with dinner. The bok choy was also very successful. I added it to a Chinese-style stir fry and my husband ate it happily. I ate the other one stir fried with a bit of ginger and soy sauce as a vegetable with dinner list night and it was very nice.
The curly kale, however, was only semi-successful. I tried a recipe for kale soup (kale & carrots) which I think is fine, but it does look rather like a pot of pond algae and G refused to even sample it. However, though I'm finding it perfectly edible, it's not outstanding and if G's not going to eat it, making a whole pack into soup creates too much soup just for me. The next step is to try kale stir fried as a side vegetable. I may also try sneaking a little bit into my home-made soups, being careful not to produce the pond algae effect. :-)
