    Thank you! I don't have an air fryer so I'll try roasting it. Do you make a lot of vegetables in the air fryer? I don't have a convection oven and don't eat a lot of meat so I'm not sure how much I'd use one.

    Saw you mentioned roasting radishes, I'm going to make balsamic green beans and will throw a couple on to check it out!

    Air fryer and me? You must be new here or not read many options expressed by me on the topic of air fryers lol :)

    Oven is all you need for any of your baking, roasting, broiling. It might only take 10 minutes longer.

    I try, with kale.
    Oh, how I try.
    One salad remains in my mind, when I legit enjoyed it.
    Spinach I love.
    Kale, man - we have our issues.

    I keep trying!

    Agreed on the oven.
    But I have really limited kitchen real estate.
    All veg in oven for me.
    Or grill if I can talk someone else into doing the patience-requiring parts. I do not excel at monitoring stuff.

    Kale. Vile.

    50% the same word. That’s all I have to say!

    Allow me to try and change your mind. Maybe I will maybe I wont, but you most likely have ingredients in your house sans the vile devilish kale, so pick up a pack and give it a go.

    Get:
    300g chopped kale bag (organic whole foods here is about that) and cut it up into even smaller pieces
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 tsp EVOO
    2 small garlic cloves and grate or crush them
    1 tsp grated fresh ginger
    pinch of salt / pepper

    Do:
    Combine all that in a big bowl, and massage and I mean like really try and choke that horrid kale, for about 2-3 minutes. You will see its starting to change colour and get softer and softer. Once soft and real dark now, set aside.

    Get:
    roast a large head of broccoli, chopped into bite size pieces (you might already have the in your fridge)
    1 avocado and slice / dice it
    1 tsp soy sauce
    1 tsp fish sauce
    2 tsp aged balsamic
    1 avocado and slice / dice it
    few sprigs chopped scallions green and white parts
    toasted sesame seeds, tsp would be fine

    Do:
    mix all that into the salad and let it sit for few minutes as you prep your protein.
    mix again and top of toasted sesame seeds

    Let me know who it goes.

    Hmmm ok, game on! Judging by your food photos and other food related posts I’ll trust your tastes far enough to give it a good shot!

    I’m just about to go to the supermarket so I’ll grab a bag of Kale while I’m there. Everything else I have in the kitchen already.

    I’ll report back!
  • just_Tomekjust_Tomek Posts: 6,822Member Member Posts: 6,822Member Member
    Just make sure to REALLY massage and rub that kale good. I mean dont do it with love and tenderness, do like you really want to hurt the thing haha :)

    @purplefizzy how about baby kale?! 🌱Less bitter - close kin to spinach ☺️

    Produce porn fam! Tonight is the great Harvest moon! Take a peak into the night sky tonight - brightest moon of the season!

    Re tonight’s moon 🌝 - historically there is an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening, which was a traditional aide to farmers harvesting their summer-grown crops. Hence, it's called the 'Harvest' Moon. I like to think of the bounty of the crops - a night to begin the new season. I wax poetic. ☺️ Transformation...

    Went blackberry picking this morn - last of the berries of the season here on the east coast. Just pure and simple sun loved berries- so sweet - little bites of heaven. I thought the produce clan would enjoy...

    🤗

    You know I’ll try this.
    May not happen till next week, because I’m on a ‘eat all the stuff in house before leaving’ pre-travel challenge (I’ve decided it’s a good excuse to force myself to take a grocery fast. I spend WAY too much on ingredients and I totally hoard stuff like 17 kinds of vinegar...

    Tonight If I can drag my exhausted (best way possible, from trails) self to The trough, its:

    Roasted squash (of course), spinach, super finely shredded fennel, tahini, avo, poached eggs. Or possibly just fried eggs.

    Well...partial success. I ate it and it tasted good, none of that garden dirt taste and bitterness I associate with Kale. But, the Asian influences are winners with me, every time, regardless. Not sure the texture is for me. Although, even softened by the marinade and rough handling it’s good ‘chew value’ i imagine Kale is massively high in fibre!

    I made only a quarter of the recipe and could only manage half the bowl,

    There is a major win there though. I’ve never liked the thought of roasted broccoli (or in fact any vegetable other than the typical Mediterranean onion, peppers, courgette, aubergine style combo).

    But I went with it, in the interests of properly testing the recipe. Total revelation to me! Can’t wait to do that again, with lemon zest probably! I’ll also give roasted cauliflower a go, maybe with cumin seeds, as that’s always horrified me too! 😂

    I’m glad I tried it and I won’t totally dismiss the idea of Kale in the future, so I think you did change my mind. Thank you!


    I’m a roast everything produce kinda girl- then I throw it over raw. Love the textures and how they play together.

    Happy roasting!

    God how I dream of real blackberries. The store ones can not TOUCH the ones I remember from growing up in the country.

    I remember wandering along country lanes as a child; picking and eating blackberries as we went on our walks. The taste of the store bought ones doesn't come close to the sun warmed and ripened ones that we picked.

    Using my Grandmother-in-laws Roman pizza stone to make asparagus.... trials in roasting here...
    😇 🤫

    Buona salute e la vera ricchezza! 🇮🇹
    (Good health is true wealth!)


    Update: this may be the only way I roast vegetables from now on! I dry roasted and they came out sweet and just a little crispy!
    I was going to take a photo- but i ate them😬
