Lacinato kale

Lacinato kale, also known as Tuscan kale, Italian kale, or dinosaur kale, is a type of kale with a long tradition in Italian cuisine, especially that of Tuscany. It has dark blue-green leaves with an embossed texture; its rich, deep flavor and soft texture set it apart from other types of kale. It's an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamins A, C, and K, and is versatile in cooking, often used in salads, soups, and stir-fries.
