    ugogirl's Note:

    Low-fat, healthy, and delicious!! We serve this as a side dish but you can make it a main dish by adding cooked meats or top it with your favorite gumbo, jambalaya, red beans, stroganoff or stir-fry....you're only limited by your imagination. I really encourage you to use kale but you can substitute fresh spinach if kale is not available. I never use store-bought cajun seasoning (to salty and not spicy enough for us). There are some great cajun seasoning recipes on this site and you can control the salt. Kale is VERY nutritious and this is another way to sneak veggies into your meals. You can also make it vegetarian by using the vegetable broth. We love it!

      Excellent! I loved it. Received Kale in a Boutiful Basket. The next night I added a small can of
      mixed vegies, shaved fresh carrots and onions and had a 2nd meal. Very good.

      Excellent recipe! I used homemade chicken stock and kale straight from the garden. Mine ended up almost like a risotto. It was so good. This will become a family staple! Thanks for posting.
