Source of recipe: I made this up one night when I didn't know what to do with my kale and it came out awesome!

This recipe was decent, but pretty bland. I added a bunch of hot sauce and it came out pretty well. I suggest adding more of whatever seasoning you like, or perhaps using canned diced tomatoes with chiles or italian spices.


I made this for dinner lastnight with brown rice and my parents liked it. :) Just about everything in that list are staples in our house, so thats always good! I suggest more people try this!
