This Kale known as Tuscan kale, Italian kale, dinosaur kale, kale, flat back kale, palm tree kale, or black Tuscan palm. The lacinato variety is sometimes called dinosaur kale because its bumpy leaves.
Lacinato kale has been grown in Tuscany for centuries, and is one of the traditional ingredients of minestrone and ribollita.
It has dark dark-green leaves with an embossed texture. Its taste is described as slightly sweeter and more delicate than curly kale.
Tuscan kale is easier to use in recipes since it’s not very bitter, and its stems are tender.
It is commonly used in pastas and soups, but can also be eaten raw, in a salad / even stirfried.
In Tuscan cuisine, lacinato kale is often used in ribollita - a thick, hearty soup.
