Sweet and savory kale

I have to admit that I knew nothing about kale a year ago. In general, I love greens. They are chock full of nutrients and not bad taste-wise. The best part is that it is super super easy to prepare. Whether you toss it in a salad, bake it for a light snack or add it to a delicious smoothie, kale is definitely a veggie you don’t want to skip out on.

This sautéed kale recipe came from the back of a package that I bought from Walmart. Below is my version of this recipe. I don’t usually measure so I will include the store-bought recipe.

Add kale, cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Add cranberries and continue cooking on medium high heat, stirring often. The liquid should reduce by about half and cranberries will get plump in about 10 minutes.

I whipped up some BBQ chicken wings and corn soufle as well. That recipe will take too long to write, lol.
