What is Dinosaur Kale?

I’ve been hearing about Dinosaur Kale a lot lately, but what exactly is it?

I saw it on a menu… This salad sounded good, but I was still unsure.

Dinosaur kale is also referred to as Lacinto or Tuscan kale.

Dinosaur kale is described as having dark blue, green leaves. It has a slightly bitter and earthy taste, although it is more delicate than curly kale.

Most of the recipes I looked up, cooked dinosaur kale down because of its hearty, embossed texture. Most commonly used in soups, stews and pastas, but can also be eaten in a salad.

What is your favorite way to eat dinosaur kale?
