      This was actually very flavorful! I had a mixture of kale from my CSA (curly and red Russian) and was looking for a new way to prepare it. This really filled the bill. I used sunflower oil, a 15 oz. can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes in place of the chopped tomatoes, and 1 cup of vegetable stock. It was very tasty. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.
