    Cool recipe, especially in winter when leafy greens are not in season.
    I‘d just add the info that raw kale is tough to digest, and people who consume it regularly (e.g. green smoothies) in some quantities may risk thyroid problems.
    Nowadays, when every superfood is distorted by a ‚more-is-more‘ mentality, this unfortunately bears reminding.
