the first thing i did was sorta random, i sauteed the kale with some zucchini in garlic and olive oil, mixing soy sauce with sugar (about 1/2 cup soy with about 5-6tbsp sugar) and a splash of apple cider vinegar, i cooked it longer in that and served over rice.
the next thing i did was tonight, and i did the beans and greens that was recommended a few times. i cut the kale into strips and sauteed it with garlic and olive oil and added a cup of no-beef bullion, and then added a can of rinsed white beans (i actually crushed about a third of the can in my fingers to help thicken the broth up a bit). i added a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and a half teaspoon of liquid smoke. i served it with cornbread from the joy of vegan baking (which my husband bought me last week and i've made 3 recipes out of it so far and they're all my most delicious non-cupcake baking concoctions ever!). my husband LOVES southern cooking and i really don't know too much about it, so this was a shot in the dark. he loved it! so i'm psyched. i made exactly two servings because i thought for sure it would be a flop and ended up sharing mine with him when he asked for more. :)
thank you all so much. you're inspiring. :)
