Cooking terms and kale recipes

烹饪术语和羽衣甘蓝食谱

The vegetable kale can be tough or hard. But it keeps more nutrients if you don't cook it too much. Here is a trick. Simply rub or massage the kale leaves with olive oil and seasonings. The leaves will break down and soften. The stems, or stalks, will remain tough. But you can saut them or place them in soup for added vitamins and taste.

羽衣甘蓝很硬。但如果你不过份烹调它就能保留更多的营养物质。这里有一个诀窍,用橄榄油和调味料简单地抹在羽衣甘蓝的叶子上。这些叶子就会变软。它的茎或秆还是会很硬。但是你可以把它们放到汤里用于补充维生素和增加口味。

After you massage your kale, add a little more olive oil and sweet balsamic vinegar as a dressing  or your own favorite salad dressing. Add your favorite toppings for a healthy and delicious salad.

在抹过羽衣甘蓝后,加一点橄榄油和甜香醋作为调味汁,也可以加点你喜欢的沙拉酱。加点你喜欢的佐料来做更健康美味的沙拉。
