Our family loves kale and so we are always looking for new ways to prepare it. This was easy enough -- but the flavor was missing something. We drizzled balsamic vinegar over it at the end which enhanced the flavor some. Disappointing.

Loved this. I didn't use the red pepper flakes but made the rest of the recipe as stated and it was so good. Lots of flavor even without the heat of the pepper flakes. Definitely a keeper.

I'm not a fan of kale, but this was really good. The onions sweetened it, and the peppers made for such pretty contrast. I'll be making this often. Thanks for sharing!

This was amazing - I made exactly as recipe but with NO OIL - Instead I put the onions and leek into a hot pan and browned, then added cooking wine to deglaze - I did this a few times, then sauteed in water. I follow Dr. Fuhrmans - Eat to Live - and he advises against added oil because of the amount of calories/fat it can add to a dish. In addition, I am fairly new to Kale and this was truly an amazing combination - and made the Kale so yummy. I will be making more tonight.

I too cut back on the amount of oil but substituted grape seed oil. After cleaning the kale, cut it in about 1" segments, drizzle a small amount of olive oil and sea salt on it, then put it in the oven in a grill pan to let it get crisp. After veggies are cooked, the baked kale is stirred in lightly. We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe alteration.

What a beautiful side dish - it exudes health with every bite! I loved the fresh, bright color of the steamed kale. I also used a little less oil to saute the onions and bell peppers, substituting water when needed during the cooking process. I'd probably add a bit less of the red pepper flakes (1/4 tsp. vs. 1/2 tsp.), but for someone who enjoys a spicey, vitamin-packed treat, this is it!

Excellent flavor. Also tossed in a small amount of left-over rice I had on hand.

This is delicious and by reducing the amount of oil I made a healthy recipe much healthier. I used just a touch of oil and then added a little water toward the end of the cooking time. The kale was tender in the 10 minutes indicated and a beautiful green. The red pepper flakes added just a touch of heat.

Really liked this and thoroughly enjoyed using kale and leeks from the garden. Perfect as written.
