kale sprouts

Created in a British lab Kale sprouts first came on the market in England in 2012 under the name Flower Sprouts. They were developed using natural breeding processes by British company Tozer Seeds. In 2014, both seeds and vegetables became available in the U.S. under the name Kalettes. Seeing the little vegetables’ potential star power, American farmers started growing them and giving them names like Lollipop Kale and BrusselKale. But because the plants require a lot of care to grow, they’ve been slow to take off. Demand is increasing, though, and kale sprouts are gradually becoming available in many well-stocked grocery stores. Firm is better Kale sprouts are often sold in sealed bags, so keep an eye out for sturdy-looking leaves with bright color and no wilting. They’ll keep for up to five…

SMOOTH TALK When shopping for rutabagas, choose ones that are smooth, without blemishes or wrinkles. They should be firm and feel heavy for their size. Rutabagas can be refrigerated for up to two weeks. Before using, peel off the wax, if there is any, and the skin. roasted rutabaga, mushrooms, and onions with mustard seeds and maple syrup Whole mustard seeds add a crunchy pop of flavor to maple syrup–sweetened vegetables,…

heavenly hummus

HUMMUS IS A GREAT STAPLE IN MANY DIETS, but you can easily make it the star of the meal when you use the right ingredients. This creamy, ethereal, smooth, fluffy chickpea-and-tahini spread can have a mild, nutty, toasty flavor and delicate texture that can be elevated with flavorful toppings. Most importantly, start with dried chickpeas, which result in better flavor than canned. For the best texture, you’ll need to remove the chickpea skins. To make the job of removing the skins easier, you’ll cook the chickpeas with baking soda, which scrubs the skin to loosen it, so a lot comes off during cooking. Then you’ll rinse the cooked chickpeas under cold water to dislodge the majority of the skins. It’s the perfect compromise—a little bit of extra work, but the…
