We put kale in smoothies. Especially with berries. One of my favorite soups is zuppa toscana with kale and potatoes.

Kale and white bean soup is very good. I make one similar to this but add sliced carrots. I also slice the kale thin so it wilts way down. Sometimes the store has dark purple carrots, which makes a pretty dish with the dark green kale.

Cooking the greens with Italian sausage or ham, or with leftover bacon drippings, would be good if you eat meat.

That reminds me, I did make a really nice kale, white bean, and Italian sausage soup last fall. Really nice with some parmesan shredded into it and some crusty warm bread.

I just put it in my salads once in awhile. Before I do tho, when tearing it I also rub it together in my hands to soften it. It makes it easier to chew.
I've done the kale chip thing but I always end up cooking them too much. But they taste ok.

Ribollita ("reboiled") is another good soup made with kale, as well as savoy cabbage and basil. The recipe I use and love is in an old cookbook I'd have to dig out, but these ingredients look about right. (Mine uses ham, not bacon or pancetta, though.) It's a hearty, tomato-based bean soup with a lot of vegetables. You cook it one day, refrigerate it overnight, then bake it the next day with bread. This recipe calls for the bread to be added to the soup. I prefer to toast thick slices of dense bread, layer with thinly sliced onions in a large casserole dish, ladle the hot soup over, sprinkle with parmesan and bake until bubbling hot.

Kale chips. Great crunchy snack but not as crunchy as potato chips.

I bake it for most everything. I do like the kale chips to just snack on however, I also crumble it up after baking it and add it to everything: scrambled eggs, omelettes, chili, all kinds of soups, all casseroles, stir fries, spinach salads, potato toppers, frittatas, nachos, tacos, burritos, turkey burgers, pizza or most any type of hot dish I make.

I go through tons of kale.

Thanks, JustJulia. This - as well as Ina's soup recipe (I love everything she makes) - looks great! I appreciate the recipes!

Corn-fused, it sounds like you and I have both pretty well exhausted the potentials of kale... I've done all of these things and then some too. Frittatas, pastas, sautéed, a myriad of soups, stir fry, chips, slaws, and as a semi-crispy topping for almost everything else are my go-to's, to name a few. I suppose that should be enough! I just get bored easily, I guess...

Thanks everyone for suggestions.
