I must say, my boyfriend and I were very skeptical about this. He doesn't love kale and I wasn't sure if this would be a good side dish for dinner. But I can say this dish is good anytime of day. We both absolutely fell in love with this and couldn't stop eating. He actually forgot about the meat on his plate and devoured this. It's very flavorful, filling, satisfying and you feel good about eating kale. I made it exactly as the recipe says.
