Kale bake recipe

Kale is packed full of vitamins and flavour and is considered a superfood. This kale bake is a dish that makes super healthy into super tasty as it teams lush tomatoes with creamy crumbled feta cheese.



  • 1 bunch kale
  • 10ml (2 tsp) olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1 stick celery, finely chopped
  • 100g pancetta, finely chopped
  • 1 tin (400g) diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup feta, crumbled


Preheat oven to 200°C conventional (180°C fan-forced). Roughly chop the kale and set aside.

Heat a little olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and gently cook the onion, carrot, celery and pancetta for about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and kale and stir well.

Tip mixture into an ovenproof dish and dot the top with crumbled feta.

Bake for 20 minutes and serve with warm bread.


  • Why do we call kale a superfood? Kale is rich in vitamins A,C and K and extremely rich in phytonutrients.
  • This is one of those dishes that looks pretty humble on their own, but add some beautiful warm sourdough, good butter and what you have is a really lovely dinner.
