Spread the love: Kale-onaise makes a great burger or toast topping.

“Kale-onaise is one of my all-time favorite recipes,” says chef Jennifer Iserloh, co-author of the sexy kale cookbook 50 Shades of Kale. “You throw everything in a blender and voilà! It’s so ridiculously easy.”

Two cups of kale have just over 66 calories and provide more than 200 percent of your daily vitamins A and C. And according to Iserloh, fresh garlic contains sulfur compounds that become more available to the body after crushing the cloves or mixing them with lemon juice. “I use it with shrimp or as a sandwich spread,” she says. “People don’t expect to like it, but instead of butter on my toast, I use kale-onaise.”
