Power Kale & smoked turkey

Here’s a dish I love cooking! It is a dish that I could eat every day If you have cooked kale before you are in for a treat. The first thing to do is to use the freshest Kale you can find.

That means it is freshest if bought locally. Some of my local farmers are so good at growing kale, and I love getting it from the farmers market. I especially love getting my hands on their freshly picked baby kale, that is the best!

It reminds me of the time as a child, my GrandKalemother and aunt would take us to local farms to pick fresh vegetables and fruit. We would pick things like blackeyed peas, green beans, lima beans, collards, and strawberries.

I can’t remember if we ever picked kale, but they probably did.  With my family being from Loiusianna they loved cooking with the freshest food that they could find.

This meant that we kids got to escape from city life for a few hours to run through fresh fields, that were ripe with fresh vegetable goodness.

Although there were some rough times in my childhood, these times being with my Grandmother picking fresh fruit and vegetables healed some of my brokenness.

I loved all of the sounds and smells of naturally grown foods, it’s the reason I go to farms today.

I made sure that my children had the chance to create some of these fond memories of food as I had.

So, along with the fresh kale be sure to purchase fully cooked smoked turkey. This will assure that the turkey is cooked when put with the kale. The turkey will only need warming in the kale for eating.

If you don’t have access to local farms or farmer markets, just grab kale from your local grocer, many times they are buying local.


This recipe calls for 3 different bells peppers, but it is not necessary that you use them all. I guess that is just the creole heritage coming out in my cooking. I love the colors and the taste!
