This is the best Kale recipe I've tried. I have used roasted almonds and regular raisins in a pinch and it's been delicious that way as well but this THE BEST!

Best way I've found to fix kale. I really enjoyed the sweetness of the raisins with the kale.

This was delicious. My husband made it, and he used golden raisins. He also toasted the pine nuts and just mixed them in with the kale. The sweetness of the raisins really complements the bitter and sharp taste of the kale. The two flavors go together perfectly. Thanks, Bergy!

Gosh I love kale and this recipe brought out it's flavor beautifully. I did not mince the garlic and just eyeballed the other ingredients. This was very easy to make and I could eat a pound of this myself!Thank you for posting!

Best way to eat kale - for sure! I did use a pinch of cinnamon and only 2 garlic cloves which I boiled with the kale, then mashed. Otherwise, exactly as written. My first experience with Kale - I expected a strong (bitter) flavor and it's actually pretty mild - I think kids would eat this!

Nice recipel I enjoyed this (with a squeeze of lemon and some Texas Pete); family didn't. Kale is still kale, after all, but it's nice to find a new way to try it. Occasionally!
