    Delicious. I served it over mashed potatoes. I'm not veg and I needed some extra protein and calories, so I added some sliced cooked turkey sausage. - 11/13/08

    This is the second time I made this dish...it was excellent! I took advice from one of the other reviews and chopped up some sweet potatoes and ate is as a stew. My husband not only ate it...but enjoyed it too! - 1/27/08

    Very good but high in sodium, I used no salt added beans, homemade stock and didn't "season to taste" with salt. - 2/15/12

    This is delicious. I used cannelini beans and cooked it a bit longer to get the kale softer. I used some low sodium chicken broth since all of the veggie broths in the store have so much sodium in them. I used red onions, which made it nice and colorful. I really liked this. - 4/19/10

    I substituted red chard for the kale, but the overall dish is very tasty and healthy. I would make it again and try it with kale. I served it with baked sweet potatoes...yummy - 9/18/07

  • Kale arrived in my CSA box and I needed something to make with it. This fit the bill and was fairly tasty. Was very salty, and I might drain the beans next time and add some extra broth instead. - 6/17/12

  • Very yummy... of course - I forgot how long it takes to caramelize onions so by the time it was ready - everyone was starving! I knew to get my fam to eat it - I would need to add some meat... so I added some chicken sausage. My dd managed to eat AROUND the Kale - but everyone else really liked it! - 10/13/11

  • I loved this dish...had it last night with sliced cucumbers and cottage cheese on the side. I used low-sodium chicken broth as I did not have any veggie broth. I will definitely be picking up some more kale and making this again. - 8/31/11

  • swapping out rehydrated beans for the canned version lowers the sodium count significantly. I also added just enough water to steam, no significant loss of flavor and a further reduction of sodium - 8/11/11

  • This was very good. I was looking for a way to use up a bunch of kale and this absolutely fit the bill. I used a large vidalia onion and it was absolutely delicious served over brown rice. - 7/5/11

  • I'm trying to get more calcium in my diet by eating kale. This recipe fit the bill -- it's was quite flavourful! The beans and broth *do* add a lot of sodium, so I used low sodium versions. Also, I added a splash or two of Balsamic vinegar when I did the caramelised onions. Thanks for the recipe! - 2/7/11
