Festive feasts: Christmas kale and sausage meat stuffing


This kale recipe provides a healthy twist on a Christmas classic

Keen to impress friends and family with your festive meals? Cooking with kale is a great way to add unexpected new taste and texture.

Health-wise, kale is a great addition to any winter meal, as it is full of vitamin A and C, as well as folate – which all play a role in immune function. It’s also a fantastic source of fibre – 2.2g in four heaped tablespoons – which plays a role in digestive and heart health.
