Why didn’t we think of this sooner?!
Kalettes® are the product of 15 years of hard work and dedication (using traditional breeding techniques) from the British vegetable seed house Tozer Seeds. Kalettes are a non-GMO vegetable developed through traditional hybridization and not genetic modification. Known as Flower Sprouts in the U.K., this delicious vegetable has now made its way across the pond and is branded as Kalettes® in North America.
The inspiration behind Kalettes® came from a desire to create a kale type vegetable which was versatile, easy to prepare and looked great. Crossing kale with brussels sprouts was a natural fit since they are both from the Brassica Oleracea species which also includes cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli.
The result is a brand-new vegetable which looks a little like a tiny cabbage with green frilly leaves and streaks of purple. Kalettes® get their great taste by combining the best flavors from brussels sprouts and kale, resulting in a fresh fusion of sweet and nutty.
Kalettes® not only has a great flavor but is also incredibly versatile and can be cooked in a variety of ways; in fact, Kalettes® may well be one of the most versatile vegetables out there! Kalettes® can be sautéed, roasted, eaten raw and even cooked on the grill.
