Lacinato kale is a beautiful variety of kale originally found in Tuscany, with dark blue-green leaves and an embossed texture.
This particular variety’s leaves are named for the texture they evoke within dinosaur skin.
The taste is slightly milder and more delicate than curly kale when cooked.
As a result, it remains a good consistency when prepared, making it an excellent addition to stews or braised dishes.
