    I made this tonight with a curry chicken recipe (from here) and Kashi Moroccan Curry rice pilaf. This was a perfect compliment. My boyfriend and I are not familiar with Kale and didn't know what to expect, but we both loved it. So easy to make, too. I'll definitely be making this again. - 1/26/09

    I made this as a side dish with brown rice and chicken. The flavor was perfect, and it was such an easy dish to make. Also, it reheated well. - 3/4/11

    I bought some kale at the local farmers market and didn't know what to do with it, I found this recipe and thought I would give it a try.... It was awesome! Tastes like it is inspired by a Chinese dish. I will definitely make this again! - 9/13/10

    I really liked this recipe. I didn't have quite enough kale and should have reduced the other ingredients accordingly. Will try it again soon with any adjustments. May add onion and use chicken broth instead of the water. Thanks for this recipe. - 5/29/10

    This was very good. However the portion is small when it cooks down, I could have eaten the entire batch until I looked at the 90 calories per serving. - 6/27/09

  • Yumminess! I also toasted the sesame seeds before adding them, and I would use less water as there was a lot of liquid remaining after the kale was finished cooking. I will absolutely make this again. - 4/20/09

  • I thought this was delicious. Letting the kale steam after all ingredients are added, lets the kale become very tender. I used regular oil and added sesame seeds to it in the beginning. After it was cooked, I added more. Will definitely be making this again. - 6/25/07

  • Had to cook the kale longer so it wasn't so tough, but had a good taste - 4/20/07
