Veggie Unearthed: Kalettes

As a cool hybrid (not a gmo), Kalettes takes the flavors of kale and brussel sprouts and mixes it into one super cruciferous veggie! Looking like a mini kale or a leafy brussel sprout, the colors are fantastic. The stems are purple and the leaves are green with a slight purple hue. As for nutrition, you can’t go wrong with any cousin of kale! High in iron and fiber this veggie will not disappoint.

To store your kalettes, place in the refrigerated until they are ready to be used. If they need to be freshened up submerge into an ice bath and use in a salad spinner to remove excess water. We highly recommended to keep this leafy veggie in a glass or plastic container or the very least in plastic bag and tucked in the crisper drawer to stay fresh. Remember, leafy greens need moisture to stay looking their best!

The earthy taste of these little beauties is great on the grill, roasted, sauteed, or chopped up raw into a salad.
