This year I planted my Kale in a pot to keep it away from the rabbits and slugs. I had such a great crop that my sister, Anna and I came up with this recipe. You can also use swiss chard, cabbage, or any other edible green leaf. Just for fun we added a little cinnamon. We plan on varying the seasonings the next time we cook this, maybe a little allspice. So have fun cooking.
