This is a great “SUPER FOOD SIDE DISH”. Kale is such an important food full of organosulphurs, which protects us from cancer. It’s also dripping with vitamins A, B6, and C. For those of us with muscular issues, it’s a wonderful source of potassium as well. Despite its extensive health benefits, it’s earthy-ness is often a turn off to many people. I can guarantee you that if you cook it this way, you’ll be going back for seconds. As healthy as this dish is, heck, go back for thirds and fourths!
