We had dinner at someone's house the other night, and we brought one of our favorite vegetable dishes -- steamed kale. I know, you are probably thinking, Yuck! but it was actually very good. I would eat this kale with every meal if I could, even for breakfast! Here's the recipe we use:
Coconut Peanut Kale
- 1/2 pound of chopped kale
- 1/2 can of coconut milk (about 3/4 cup)
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or add it to taste; you might want to start with 1/4 teaspoon and go up from there)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup of peanuts (we throw in a handful)
In a big saucepan or stock pot mix the coconut milk, cayenne pepper, and peanuts. Then throw in the kale. You might need to put the kale in in two batches; let the kale cook down a little before throwing in the rest). Cook on low heat, simmering, for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally. This makes enough for two people. Enjoy!
