    Tasted great, felt healthy eating it. I used teriyaki sauce instead. Too bad I don't like kale that much, but I finished my serving with no problem at all :D - 7/14/10

    How did you get 7 servings of 1 cup each?? Followed recipe exactly, and by the time the kale cooks down, lucky if you get 7 servings of 1/2 cup each. That really changes up the calorie total. Am I the only one getting this??? - 11/1/14

    Really good. A friend has given me kale from her garden and I have made this recipe twice. I have added a quart of organic veggie broth to make it a soup. Goes well with brown rice. - 8/23/11
