This past Fall, I found a new favourite side dish, and was pleasantly surprised when “they” ate it all up! Yes, the first time I served, it, there were no leftovers. Not in the pot or on the plates. And it was so simple!
We had kale in the fridge, (that I had bought for soup), and I needed a side dish for baked chicken. There were carrots, but the kids were sick of carrots. I could have sent hubby to the store for something (broccoli? ho hum), but decided I would just saute the kale. So, I heated some olive oil, added a half an onion sliced thin, and a large clove of garlic (yummy local garlic from Nanoose Edibles up the highway from us), crushed. Once the onions were soft, I added a can of white beans (Cannelini beans), and then a bunch of kale, coarsely chopped. I cooked the kale until wilted and bright green. And then took it to the plate.
And that was it! And they ate it up. Guess it is a bit like butter and salt, cook it up with onions and garlic and they will eat it up!
