Substitute 5 cups tightly packed baby spinach leaves for the chopped kale.

How to Choose, Prepare and Store Kale

Choose smaller heads of kale as they as they will be more tender. The leaves should be crisp, with a bright colour. To prepare kale, break the leaves from the stalk, and trim away the tough centre stalk. Wash, then shred or chop. Store kale in a perforated bag in the fridge. Kale becomes increasingly bitter the longer it is kept, so eat within two or three days after purchase.
