I bought kale for the first time because my husband has to eat greens with one of his medications. I never had it before and knew I had to get creative. This was the result.

How To Make kielbasa & kale

  • 1
    Wash kale, remove center stems and chop. Drain well. In a large, deep skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and saute onion until transparent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add kale, water and paprika. Lower heat, cover and cook until kale is wilted and tender, 15-20 minutes. Add beans and cook until beans are heated through.

    While the kale mixture is cooking, dice yam. Heat remaining olive oil and saute yams until carmelized and tender. I added a little water to the pan to speed up the cooking.
