Kuna Item Number: S90101
Purple kale is one of the many speciality produce items we carry at Kuna foodservice. Kale has surged to the top of the charts in popularity over the past few years; making it a great option to modernize your menu. This special vegetable offers a very robust cabbage flavor, which is more intense than that of green or black kale.
Purple kales stems should be removed prior to cooking, and the semi-crisp texture of the leave will soften under heat. Purple kale’s peak season is winter, but is available year round.Not only is it an appetizing addition toyour menu, but it is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, protein, carbohydrates and dietary fiber.
Young purple kale is the perfect addition to a mixed green salad. Fully mature leaves maybe braised, stewed, fried sautéedand baked into a delicious chip, paired perfectly with Asian ingredients such as sesame oiland ginger. And are great in hardy winter soups along side smoked meats, beans, potatoes and barely.
