20 Kale Recipes That Remind Us Why It’s Our Favorite Superfood

StyleCaster | Hannah Hickok

You know a food is trendy when Beyoncé wears it on a sweatshirt – which we almost thought meant kale was officially over. It’s only down from Queen B, right? But kale survived its 15 minutes and is still thriving as one of the most popular superfoods out there. Food bloggers and nutritionists alike continue to worship at the altar of kale, and we are so here for it. Sure, we love the fact that the green is loaded with fiber, protein, iron, calcium, and an array of vitamins – but what we’re really enamored with is that its leafy, crunchy texture adds something to every dish.

In honor of the fact that kale has gone from stylish to staple, we gathered 20 excellent recipes, many of which incorporate kale in unexpected ways, like pasta, hash, risotto, or mashed potatoes.
