How to cut Kale

If you’re new to cooking with kale, you may be wondering about the most efficient way to chop up this ingredient.

The first thing you need to do is cut the stem off from the kale leaves. You will then need to roll up your leaves and cut into thin slices. Rotate to the sliced kale and chop through it again.
