Nutritional values

The tasty kale recipe is guaranteed to satisfy the desire for hearty food! And the local superfood does not require any pork sausage or pork cheek. Thanks to Kassler, even figure-conscious people can help themselves to it with a clear conscience. And, incidentally, supply themselves with the vitamins A, C, B1 and B6 needed for the day!

Throughout northern Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia, winter is the peak season for kale, which in some places is also called brown cabbage. The preparation method and side dishes vary depending on the region. Kale with Kassler and slightly sweet roast potatoes, for example, is typical for Schleswig-Holstein.
