    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

    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

  • 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

  • i have been juicing and making the mean green drink. it leaves with a ton of juiced kale that is perfect for this. the kale is already chopped and I just add a little veg. stock. i also drain and rinse the beans to cut down on the sodium - 3/1/12

  • Amazing. Served over brown rice and spinach pasta. Would not change anything. Used red pepper flakes in lieu of the red chili pepper. Fantastic dish! - 1/2/11

  • When I decided to try this, I thought for sure my family would turn their noses and run the opposite direction. Imagine my surprise when they went crazy for it--including my finicky twelve year old! We'll be making this again for sure! - 2/17/09

  • Easy and very flavorful! I had never cooked with Kale, but was given some from a friend's garden. This recipe really countered the bitterness that Kale can have! I added onions, used canned diced tomatoes and ground ginger and pepper. Still very, very yummy! - 8/7/08

  • Great-- added onions in the beginning and used tomato paste instead of fresh tomatoes. Also if you add a little parmesan on top after serving, tastes really good! - 7/1/08

    I added carmelized onions to the beginning of the recipe. Left out hoisin sauce. Also substituted canned tomatoes, ground ginger and red chili powder, so this may not have turned out as planned!

    It was still pretty good. Thanks for the recipe. :) - 2/6/08
