I wish I knew some Kale recipes.

Wouldn't a creamy cabbage soup, with Kale substituted for the cabbage, with chunks of Rutabaga, and slices of polish dogs or ham, plenty of black pepper, and a bit of real live butter, maybe add some slices of celery and shelly beans...One of those add things as you go recipes sound good right now!

I have a Rustic Kale pie on my site that is a French recipe. We usually just steam it and we make Kale chips too!

I know this is an old thread from months ago (I'm a newbie) but wanted to add a delicious soup recipe - my favorite soup.

Sausage, Kale and Bean Soup

2 links of Italian sausage (one hot and one mild) or more if wanted
1 medium onion chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
cup of carrots diced
3 potatoes peeled and cubed (I added a sweet potato too)
1 16 ounce can of cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
1 bundle of kale, stems removed and chopped
tablespoon each of fresh rosemary, thyme and sage
1 hot chili (I just used a few dashes of hot sauce)
2 cups of chicken broth
3 cups of water
1 cup of white wine

Take sausage out of casing and scramble in the bottom of a big pot until done. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Add a little oil and saut onions until translucent (about 5 minutes), add minced garlic and cook a couple minutes more, add carrots, potatoes, beans, herbs and all liquid, once to a boil add kale and a few dashes of hot sauce or your chili and let simmer on low heat until everything is tender. I let mine simmer for about an hour to develop the flavors.

I assume you could add other veges if you wanted.

Ohhh, SeedCrazy! :welcome

:frow

Thank you for knowing recipes!!!

:celebrate

You're gonna like it here!

I'm kind of seed crazy too.

My dresser has 4 drawers full of coffee cans getting filled with mostly bean seeds, a lot of pea seeds, corn seeds, oh yes, and saome socks!

So I was given another small dresser. Guess what I did with it? It is getting full of cans of seeds too. My plastic boxes filled with seed packets I filled over the years are overstuffed, so now I save those cool packing boxes that are recloseable.

Oh. My pants are piled 6 feet high in the corner, and everything else is stuffed into the wardrobe. Do I count as seed crazy too? :lol:

LOL yep, pretty sure your seed crazy too I'm trying to do better cause I kept some so long the germination was getting bad on them so I'm pretty good about sharing now and not hoarding quite as many. But I do LOTS of flowers and a small vegetable garden and its just me here (well besides the dogs) but I do gift baskets with lots of canned goodies at Christmas for bosses and co-workers and neighbors. I LOVE this soup and I add lots more kale. I just happened to stumble on this website today, glad I did! I'll admit, I finally bought a new refrigerator (french door - big step up from my tiny starting to rust one LOL) and I picked this one because it has a nice drawer the entire bottom of the fridge and realize they last longer with refrigeration so its my seed drawer!:D
