Just fabulous! Loved everything about this recipe. I wouldn't make it a main dish, although it is nice and hearty. But I loved it as a side. I'll be sure to make this often....it can sit and cook on the stove while you are busy working on other things! This has become a favorite for me. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome. I absolutely loved this for lunch today, and it was such a great use of the kale I've received in my CSA box! I scaled the recipe back to serve one, and it was a nice hefty portion. I love CG's idea of throwing in some rice and beans--my thought was black-eyed peas for next time. That is not to say that this isn't hearty enough on its own, because it sure is. I did use the cranberries and threw in some raw sunflower seeds in lieu of almonds based on what I had on hand. Lovely! I didn't even feel the need for added salt and pepper, which is saying a lot coming from me! Thanks, Sharon! Made for Veg Swap 35.
This was the perfect meal! I made "rice bowls": spoonful of long grain brown rice, spoonful of plain pinto beans and this delicious kale mixture. I wouldn't skip the almonds or the cranberries as they gave not only added color but extra flavor. The cranberries and almonds were scattered on top of each serving. The lacinato kale (aka "dinosaur" kale) was cooked a total of 5 minutes. I like kale more on the raw side. Loved it! Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.
