I hope so!  I think all the varieties of kale are rated the same.  (Lacinato is my favorite!)

use it as you would kale, I presume.
or is it very different from kale, or belonging to another family?
consider unrated food as neutral, unless you are susceptible to that particular food.

from Fresh Direct:

"Lacinato kale tastes garden fresh and mildly bitter. This distinctive, tangy kale originated in Tuscany, where it's known as "cavalo nero" (black cabbage). Try Lacinato kale braised, or in a soup with white beans, garlic, and tomatoes."

A neutie in my book - I'm too new and way to anal to be eating a neutral often

It is a variety of kale and in my experience, even better than 'regular' kale. It is mild, tasty and a beautiful deep green-black! I would suspect it is beneficial just as plain old kale is, perhaps even more so because of the deep color of the leaves. It certainly is beneficial for me! Highly recommended for all kale recipes.

It is a variety of kale; I believe all varieties of kale are beneficial.  

If possible, try it, it is delicious.

I made soup with the last of the lacinato kale purchased at our local HFS . . . it was delicious! I really love kale soup and it loves me too--must be genetic, since my ancestry has a strong Scots strain in it

Okay, ya twisted my arm

This is a variation on kail brose, which is a very old recipe. Kail brose is made by taking a big batch of curly kale (usually two heads), boiling it up and chopping it fine, then putting it in some beef stock with pinhead oats and a little cream or whole milk and seasoning with salt and pepper. The finely-ground oatmeal thickens the liquid and you get a nice creamy soup. BUT--not very O friendly!

So I make my kale soup by boiling and chopping up the kale, then very gently simmering it in the beef broth with some onions and maybe a root vegetable like carrots; haven't tried turnips yet, but I bet they'd taste excellent. When the kale is done, I add in chopped up sausage (beef or lamb are both really good here) and maybe a little garlic and a pinch of sea salt. That's it. It's a simple soup, but very tasty. Nothing like it on a freezing cold winter's night. Made with lacinato kale, it is absolutely fantastic.

I made something really delicious using curly kale the other day, too. I love sauteed lacinato kale too much for this recipe...

ground turkey breast sauteed with an onion, finely chopped raw kale in the food processor, and added it to the turkey breast along with some spinach (previously frozen). Added cumin, and powdered garlic, and of course some salt. Presto! A delicious and healthy meal for an A.

Brighid it might not be very O friendly but it sounds like a B's delight.  Might be even better it the stock came from lamb shanks.

namelessfemm, you're more than welcome. I love to share and receive recipes.

Drea, I have to try that. I bet even my AB roomie who doesn't like kale would like that! Thanks for sharing!

GCG--yeah, I'm jealous of you Bs for being able to eat kail brose *chuckle* I bet it would be fabulous made with lamb shanks. The soup made with lamb sausage is unbelievably delicious.  

Btw, if you want to be completely authentic with the kail brose you should serve it with oatcakes and butter
