    This was my first time having kale sauted and my family and I really enjoyed it. It's such a great base recipe and I ended up adding walla walla onion to it as well. As I was eating it I thought how well sun dried tomatoes would compliment this dish & making leftovers into pita pizza. Thanks! - 9/24/09

    It works well tossed into pasta for a complete meal, too :)

  • This is awesome just as is... I loved it just like this. I also used some to mix with cooked quinoa & sauteed onions & a little mascarpone, and stuffed bell peppers with the mixture and roasted it. Really great that way too. NICE recipe, it's a keeper! - 5/11/16

  • This recipe was my first time trying kale (making and/or eating,). Honestly, I was surprised by how much I liked it. I made it again tonight with dinner. I might try the suggestion of tossing it in with pasta. Sounds like it could be quite good that way too. Might even plant kale next year! - 7/1/14

  • Good guide to start. I added chopped green onions and a couple grinds of parmesan cheese. Hubby was impressed he was eating kale. His only comment was "needs more garlic next time". - 2/4/14

  • I felt like I was fueling my body with yummy power foods, full of good nutrients. The recipe is more of a "prepare to taste" since there are not more measurements (like ounces or cups) to the ingredients, so the calorie count will vary. - 1/13/12

  • This was good and i would make it again. I try to stickl to the recipe the first time. Next time i will try balsamic vinger on it. A little more garlic and some onion. But i liked it and will fix it again. - 11/10/11

  • We just tasted it. I bought kale after hearing how nutritious it is. Honestly, I prefer collard greens. I used tomatoes grown in my garden which have real flavor and texture as opposed to store-bought. I crushed garden-grown garlic cloves.After tasting, I added some Italian balsamic vinegar dressing - 7/20/11

  • I used maybe a tsp of oil, just enough to get the garlic and tomatoes going, and added a ladle of chicken broth. Even my picky teenagers liked this one! - 4/3/11

  • This was tasty! I had some extra pancetta (about 1.5 oz) that I fried up first, then skipped the olive oil. I also had some carrots I sliced up and threw that in for color and my kids like carrots and used alittle sea salt. The rest I followed above. Will make again! - 3/18/11

  • Loved it. Now I'm not a vegetable girl, but I shook a little oregano on the garlic and tomatoes while cooking and a little sea salt. Added a little grated parmesan cheese at the table. Yummy! My husband like it too and said he'd eat it again. - 2/10/11

  • good, but I was able to use less oil to save some calories and more garlic made it tastier. - 2/26/10
