Kale with Potato Waffles and ham

Kale with air-dried ham and warm potato waffles

November 2nd, 2017 | main dishes

When I was a child I did not like kale. I qualified this statement when I travelled to Shanghai and tasted sea cucumbers. Today I eat kale, but I still don’t like our traditional German way to prepare kale. Too fat, too ugly, too heavy. And then this sausage called „Pinkel“?!? Last autumn I gave kale a second chance. I must admit it’s a very tasty vegetable. It’s only a matter of how to prepare it. Try this.

Kale salad (4 portions)

1 bunch fresh mint
cut kale and mint into fine stripes
1 red onion, finely diced
1 TS virgin olive oil with lemon
sauté the onion and cool down
2 TS white balsamic vinegar
7 TS virgin olive oil with lemon
Sea salt, pepper
mix a vinaigrette, add the onion and marinate the kale in it, prepare the waffles in the meantime
min. 100 air-dried ham (Serrano or Parma ham or Coppa di Parma)
fresh Parmesan cheese, grated or flaked
Place ham on the warm waffle and the kale salad on top of it. Alternatively, fry the Coppa very crispy and serve it on top of the kale Serve sprinkled with Parmesan

The potato waffles may also be served with a simple tomato sauce and Parmesan. A bruschetta prepared of diced tomatoes, diced Mozzarella cheese, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Mediterranean herbs is also perfect wih the waffles.
