In this post I share a fun purple kale with southwest flavor recipe. There are so many new varieties of vegetables on the market today. Purple kale can be found locally and you can even purchase the seeds to grow your own. Check out my growing tips and seed recommendations below.
Purple Kale with Southwest Spin Recipe
Fresh is best … always use fresh produce when creating a dish. That is why I recommend exploring new varieties you may only have access to when you grow your own. Do not limit yourself to basic kale. Many of the new varieties on the market have a smoother and richer flavor. Another option for this recipe is a purple or giant red mustard. If you use about 1/3 of a cup mixed with traditional greens you will never go back to basic green kale again. For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:
- purple kale
- romaine lettuce
- avocado slices
- garden fresh tomato
- slat and pepper to taste (optional)
- 1 cup of prepared quinoa / brown rice blend with southwest seasons
- sour cream (optional)

Don’t limit yourself to exact ingredients used in this recipe. I recommend a southwest flavored quina and rice mix. If you don’t have a mix handy just make your own by adding cumin, garlic and cilantro. If you do not have purple kale you can always use a little of the mustard greens I mentioned earlier. I hope you take advantage of the print option below.
