Each year we’re faced with a new array of fad vegetables, coming fresh off a new season of Chopped or Top Chef. Cauliflower everything, romanesco, brussels sprouts – they’ve all had their day in the sun. Several years after the emergence of the leafy green superfood Kale, and we still see it stocked on shelved and crowding recipe search results coast to coast.
