Like Kale and Brussels Sprouts? Try Kalettes!

This is a big deal, kind of like a new iPhone release in the produce aisle. Say hello to the Kalette. You may not know this veggie yet, but you certainly know its parents: kale and Brussels sprouts.
Naturally cross-bred in England, Kalettes made their way stateside last fall and for us it was pretty much love at first bite. Look for them at Trader Joe’s (packaged as Kale Sprouts) or in a produce section near you. Try them roasted: the outer leaves crisp up like kale chips while the stalk stays tender and mildly sweet. Other ways to eat them: shredded in a salad, halved and sautéed as a pizza topper or in a frittata. They sure are cute… but luckily not too cute to eat!
