I don't like vegetables much because humans are carnivores, but sometimes I like lettuce on my burgers. Normal lettuce mind you, none of that high falutin snob shit whatever it's called.
You vegans can have your cow food, it tastes like shit but then again the cute widdle animals didn't die (except all the millions of mice that died in the field lol what are you going to do now faggot)
an arugula, corn lettuce salad. You eurocucks are really lucky that arugula and corn lettuce are so cheap and available.That is an incredible mix. I grow my own of both but I wish I could pick it up at the store here. Also belgian endives so cheap but so great. When I lived in france I ate this almost everyday with a simple vinaigrette it was like 1 euro/kilo. Why the fuck are endives so expensive in America?
Why does europe blow America away when it comes to lettuce selection? We generally have the best of everything but in lettuce we are miles behind.
>>7268645 The price of "rocket" is ridiculous here. Arugula is so much better than spinach but good luck getting it cheap. It also goes bad in three days. I don't know if it's the packaging or what.
I grow kale since it requires no effort and costs a stupid amount in stores. Fresh from the garden with a seasoning of caterpillar poop is the best way to get your kale. Seriously caterpillars love it. Gotta triple wash that shit.
Are you in america? Kale has actually become fairly cheap here in Kentucky. You can get a huge bunch for 99 cents pretty much all the time at least one grocery store. Arugula is ridiculously expensive.
But yea both of those grow ridiculously well here and I do them both and usually end up getting sick of them. Corn lettuce not so well and the plants are smaller.
>>7268690 In my home country, kale is a pretty common vegetable . It's delicious. I've been in the US permanently for about 11-12 years now. When I first moved here, kale was 39¢/lb because all the cool, moustachioed douchecunts hadn't "discovered" it yet. Now, it's $1.99/lb or more because Lumberjack-Americans and vegans need their disgusting green smoothies. The price and use of kale in this country nowadays is a fucking sacrilege.
>>7268645 I don't know what corn lettuce is, but arugula/rocket is great with large-leaf parsley and various lettuces, including the white chicory you have pictured there. Easily my favourite salad and the one I eat most often.
>>7268690 Yeah, but I live in outskirts of chicago. I can get a pomello for 1.50 but arugula only comes in pricey plastic containers and kale goes for 2.50 or so. I can dedicate a 5 foot by 10 foot section of my garden to growing kale and arugula which covers my needs all summer and fall, but once the snow starts falling I'm fucked.
The prices for greens make no sense when it's so easy to grow. Why can I get a decent price for pomello but raped on greens that aren't romaine or iceberg? Chicago is weird. Illinois needs to use its farm land for things besides corn and soy.
>>7268774 Due to its extremely high fibre content, kale freezes nicely with no ill effects. Buy it when it's cheap, blanch and shock it, squeeze of excess water and freeze it in portion sizes. Today for dinner, for example, I cooked up kale cheesy rice for dinner. Took out a portion of kale from the freezer, thawed it, chopped it up and went at it. Last week, I used some to make kale and bean soup. Before that, I made chicken in green soup by blitzing the kale with chicken stock to make a green-coloured base for the soup, using the solids leftover in the initial fry for the soup.
