Great saute – I’m a big kale fan and always looking for new recipes.

Thanks Kristi, me too. I’m always trying to figure out ways to sneak more kale into my diet. I love it!

I just made the yellow split pea and kale soup and it was dilucioes! It’s a hearty fall soup that is very fragrant as it cooks. I added some curry powder as you suggested. I bet it gets even better when it’s reheated. For company, I would serve with a multi-grain bread.
