{Citrus + Garlic BBQ Kale}

A nutritious superfood, Kale is one of those great garden staples that produces in abundance for us all season long and well into winter. Because of this, it continues showing up in those bins for our members who both love it and reap the benefits. However, it can also be hard to find new and creative ways to keep using this prolific leafy green. So here’s another way for you all to enjoy it– BBQ style. Check it out!

Thank you again to Jessica Musslewhite for yet another delish creation. (See more of her work at Mushrooms & Thyme blog) I hope you all enjoy it and the added flavour it brings to your life!
