    Dancer^'s Note:

    Despite its list of ingredients, this Portuguese dish is simple to make because everything goes straight into the pot and simmers into a rustic blend of nicely-balanced flavors. Points 3.

      this was BEYOND awesome!!!!! It was my first try with Kale, and lemme tell ya, I have a new favorite Veggie!!! I made a few tiny adjustments. I used canned diced tomatoes, and only about 1/4 c. broth. I also used minced garlic. I let it simmer about 10 minutes only because I was strapped for time and it was wonderful, wonderful, WoNDERFUL!

      A hit at our house when served as a side dish. I used a can of Italian diced tomatoes rather than fresh and some homemade seasoned beans I had in the freezer. Healthy and wonderful. I'd serve it over brown rice next time.

      This was an was a great surprise. I also used the diced tomatoes as suggested by Britfoodlover and let it cook down to a slightly moist vegetable mixture. Not really appetizing looking but tastes great. Maybe the cooking changes the colors a bit.
