This week we discovered Kale. Kale is a super-nutritious leafy-green that is rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants. I searched for a way to make this a main course, since braised Kale is popular, but probably not that satisfying all alone. I tried this recipe from Giada for Spicy Parmesan Green Beans and Kale, and for once followed it to the T, and it came out really good. Definitely the first time my husband has gone back for seconds of a green vegetable. The key, however, was to eat it with crispy baguette toasts to add something crunchy. We were left feeling like we were craving something afterwards, and couldn't place what it was, so I'm thinking next time we'll add some fake meat to the mix or maybe some potatoes or pasta on the side. However, this recipe was very flavorful, and we were still impressed by it today when we used it as filling in an egg white omelette.
