Creamed Greens: Kale (Keto, Low Carb)

I can’t remember when was the last time I ate kale! I can’t get kale here in Gulbene!


This bunch of Kale (actually 3 bunches) I got as a barter. Helped with photography work. There are two things I love to make: green smoothie or creamed greens. Since smoothies usually aren’t keto and I didn’t have other ingredients to make a smoothie… remains – creamed greens!


This recipe is simple and good if you have greens but don’t know what to do with them. I use to make it with kale, beet greens or chard.

  1. It sounds great. I’ve never been too fond of kale, tastes great but I don’t like the texture, but as you know we buy beets a lot and from the market I can stop the stall holder chopping them off, as most people ask him to do. So next time I get beets from the market I’ll give this recipe a go.

    1. Maybe, but you know beets have “special” beet taste! So I prefare kale and chopp it before cooking. And don’t overcook 🙂 Kale is better than beet or spinach to me….


  2. We celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, that would be a great side dish to serve with our big turkey meal!! We have had a problem with our romaine lettuce having E. Coli, on national news yesterday they told everyone to throw out their romaine lettuce…Kale would be a good alternative:)

    1. I’m hearing of E.Coli in wordpress secound time this year. Is it something that “shows up” out off nowhere!? Maybe you can wash lettuce and eat it… Imagine how much food will be throw away. I don’t know what is E. Coli and why it’s on your salads!

      1. It’s a bacteria that breads in the environment and some foods…it’s aggressive and can make us very sick, it can’t be washed off…they said, if we have the lettuce, wash everything it came in contact with. I just threw ours out in the trash, my husband had it for supper last night before we heard about it on the news, he’s fine:)

        1. Terrible. I’m thinking about growing process – how lucky we are living in Latvia. Our food is REAL and if it’s not there are plenty of local small farmers to buy streight from them.
