Kale
Superfood Credentials: As if you don't already know, this cruciferous veggie is a good source of iron, vitamin A for good vision and calcium, among other essential vitamins and nutrients.

How to Add It to Your Life: Farro, a barley-like grain, can taste plain on its own, but not when Mitchell mixes it with white beans, browned portobello mushroom slices and Gruyère and Parmesan. The cheeses make a creamy sauce that's rich enough to soften the addition of supernutritious kale leaves. Bonus: The dark green color gives the dish welcome color.
