Been thinking with all the consumption of kale chips through the months, I must be developing a love for anything kale. *laughs heartily* Even my boys have been commenting on (dishes that contain kale) how much they love it.
Decided on a meatless meal tonight. I try to limit meat to maximum 4 times a week. Some weeks I am able to adhere to that self-request whereas others, not so much. However, there are some weeks we consume very little meat. I think it all balances out in the end.
1 full head of garlic, sliced large
1/2 head cauliflower sliced
1 large bunch kale sliced
1 heaping tablespoon spicy herb blend*
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon water
Cook over medium high heat, garlic in a small amount of olive oil. When starting to brown, add cauliflower. Turn down heat to medium, let cook for approx. 10 mins. Add spice blend, mix well. Add kale and water, allow to cook for an additional 10 mins, stirring regularly. Add sesame seeds and walnuts. Turn down heat, let simmer for approx. 5 mins.
This dish is delicious served with some wild rice (as shown), pasta or basmati rice.
*I used Coldfoot Jalapeño blend from Summit Tea & Spice. It a beautiful spicy blend of: jalapeño, roasted garlic, white pepper, lime peel, kosher salt, coriander, chipotle & lime juice powder.
