When Kale And Brussels Sprouts Had A Baby
A Brand New Vegetable
I just discovered a brand new vegetable, kalettes. Kalettes are a non-GMO hybrid cross bred from kale and brussels sprouts. They are nutty, sweet and very healthy. Kalettes originated in the U.K, where they are known as flower-sprouts. Purple, green and ruffly, these gorgeous crucifers are about the size of a brussel sprout, but look more like a miniature head of kale.
Where To Buy Kalettes
I have found kalettes at Costco and Whole Foods. Trader Joe's also carries kalettes.
How To Cook Kalettes
Kalettes can be sauteed, grilled or roasted, or slice them thin and eat them raw in a salad. The same cooking methods used for kale and brussels sprouts will also work for kalettes. Check out my recipe for quick and easy Roasted Kalettes.
Health And Nutrition
Kalettes are nutritional rock stars, just like their parents kale and brussels sprouts. They are high in Vitamins A, C, K and B6 as well as a good source for iron and fiber.
Grow Your Own Kalettes
You can grow your own kalettes from seeds purchased on Amazon.
