Wondering how to cut kale? Here’s a step by step guide and video that shows you how, including how to stem kale and chop kale.
- 1 bunch curly kale or Tuscan kale
- Fold the leaves of the kale together and hold them with your non-cutting hand. Use a large chef’s knife to cut off the tough stem.
- Roll up the kale leaves.
- Cut the kale into slices, using a circular motion with the knife. (Make thicker slices if the kale should be chopped into rough pieces; see Step 4.) You can use thinly sliced kale ribbons for salads and soups.
- If you’re chopping the kale, rotate the slices and then chop them in the other direction to make small pieces. Repeat for all the kale leaves.
