Whether you’re an adventurous eater or simply looking to get more bang for your buck when it comes to your nutrition, you might want to consider giving kalettes a taste test. Sure, the name makes them sound like something that’s been Bedazzled, but kalettes — a mishmash of kale and Brussels sprouts — are actually small green and purple sprouts with curly leaves. And like other cruciferous vegetables, kalettes are rich in vitamins K, B6, and C.
A British veggie-breeding company created the food in 2014 after 15 long years of failed attempts. A handful of aliases for the new hybrid includes kale sprouts, Brussels kale, and flower sprouts. Whatever you want to call it, it’s all kalettes.
So yes, it’s an amazing veggie that you should absolutely consider adding to your diet. However, it’s important to remind you that taking one bite or mouthful won’t magically deliver results. Just like you do in the gym or on the court or field, it takes consistency and dedication to see a desired outcome.
Some ways to incorporate kalettes into your meals include: baked kalette pasta (just mix it in like you would other veggies and add-ins), kalette, tomato, and feta cheese salad, or a kalette stir fry with brown rice and an assortment of other seasonal vegetables.
