Can’t tolerate the roughness of kale? Try sautéing it! Sautéed kale has a softened texture, but does not fully take away the crunch! On another note, kale contains alot of beta-carotene, an antioxidant which can turn into the essential vitamin A in our bodies. Beta-carotene can only be converted into vitamin A if heat is applied to the food, so sautéed kale gives you an extra boost of vitamins and antioxidants!
