I just learned that kale and brussels sprouts can hang out on their stalks for a good long time in the fall. I've never grown either so I had no reason to know that but it does explain why we're still getting so much kale in the share. We're not overly fond of greens in cooked form where they're easily identified but I'm finding them to be very useful and unoffensive when used in soups and stews.
Leek and White Bean Soup with Kale
1 lb dried small white beans, soaked and cooked
1 bunch (3 medium) leeks
1/2 bunch kale, cleaned, blanched and chopped small.
1/4 c butter
3 chicken broth cubes
1/2 tsp dried tarragon
Saute the leeks in the butter until they're soft. Add the cooked beans and enough water to cover. Puree with immersion blender at any point in the process if you're so inclined. Add the remaining ingredients.
My kale was some sort of purple kale so my soup looks like a blueberry smoothie. Very tasty!
