Kale Sprouts with Roasted Garlic and Parmesan

Roasted Kale Sprouts Kalette Garlic Recipe

Earlier this year, I discovered a new NON-GMO vegetable hybrid – the “Kalette” / “Kale Sprouts” / “Lollipop Kale”, which is a cross between Brussels sprouts and kale. I found it first at Johnny Seeds, while shopping for vegetable seeds. We planted the kalette seeds in our aquaponics garden, but they never really took off, I planted them too late in the Spring. Both Brussels sprouts and kale don’t care for hot weather, and our heat started quite early.

Where can I find Kale Sprouts?

Despite my planting failure, I did find Kale Sprouts at Trader Joe’s (see below for more retailers). The little sprouts did indeed look like a cross between two of my favorite vegetables – miniature bunches of sturdy, frilly leaves.

Cut them in half to cut down on roasting time. The sprout centers are slender and quite tender.

I also added a small head’s worth of whole, smashed garlic cloves to the pan. Drizzle with olive oil and toss.

A good roasting in the oven at 400F for 25 minutes. I like to shake the pan halfway through.
