KALE DREAMS

Planning my meals for the week around the abundance of kale I have left after making the Cubasian Stir Fry this week and my old hat chickpea & sausage dish with the red wine sauce (which usually includes spinach, but I had the kale, so why not?). Definite contenders that don’t call for me to make a grocery store trip:

1. Mediterranean Kale: steamed kale with a garlic-lemon-soy-sauce-olive oil dressing. It doesn’t strike me as particularly Mediterranean, but we can go with it. 

2. Kale, white bean, and tuna salad: it’s actually been my habit to use hummus instead of mayo on my tuna salad. I think I would skip the white beans and just make my tuna salad as usual, mixing the chopped up kale in where I would normally add celery and parsley. I will have to make hummus, but this can be done—easy. 

3. Kale salad with an avocado dressing: to die for. I will have to do some math, since I only have half of an avocado in my possession. 

4. Kale and chorizo with a poached egg: straight out of my freezer, I can stir fry my chorizo with a little kale and have a wonderous breakfast. Note to self: learn how to poach eggs. But, an over-easy fried egg will do just as well. 

And, for future decadence, after I break down and make a grocery store trip:

Mashed potatoes with kale and goat cheese: Self-evident.
