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 with air-dried ham and warm potato waffles

Kale salad (4 portions)

200 g young kale
remove hard parts of the leaves
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.

Pescado a la Veracruzana – Mexican tuna

In times when we cannot travel due to the corona pandemic, why not bring a holiday feeling on our plate at home! Last weekend we were on a short culinary trip in Mexico, more precisely in Veracruz on the east coast of Mexico. A wonderful tuna fish with a fiery, colorful sauce awaited us and it was as if we were listening to the sounds of marimba and mariachi in the humid, warm evening air… Viva México!

Brown Shrimp and pointed cabbage omelet

The recipe for this omelette with brown shrimp and pointed cabbage I found in the culinary magazine “Effilee”. There, Stevan Paul writes the section “Schneller Teller [fast plate]”. However, in this case the preparation only is quick if you use already shelled brown shrimps. But: if you grew up on the North Sea coast, of course you peel them yourself…
