Dinosaur Kale is an interesting leafy green vegetable.
To be honest, I had never heard of it until it showed up in our CSA box last year. Now it's become a staple in our household since it always seems to be hiding in our produce box.
It's great to add to soups, but I was feeling something different with this bunch.
Dino Kale can be quite bitter, so it actually pairs quite nicely with the warm, comforting taste of caramelized onions.
We had baked tofu with the kale and onions - everything tasted delicious together!
