Great way to get kale into your diet without the bitter taste. For a healthier option, omit bacon and/or use olive oil instead of butter. You can also use honey for the agave.

I needed to bring a veggie dish to a dinner so I went out to the garden to see what was there. Carrots green beans kale and onions. I didn't expect to find a recipe that included all three but there it was. It looks beautiful (I had purple as well as orange carrots) and tastes great! I did have to substitute homey for the agave syrup and added a lot more kale than called for but this is going to be a staple. Oh I included the bacon because bacon! and used sliced almonds. Each gave an added dimension to this dish. Read More

Hard to get my husband to eat green beans and carrots but he liked this dish. I did fry the onions in the same pan as I fried the bacon so the crumbles were an additional touch. I also used 1/2 tsp dried ginger instead of fresh. Will definitely add this to my favorite list. Read More

To be honest halfway into cooking this recipe I started thinking that it's probably a prank. The ingredients just didn't make sense to me. I'm glad to say I was wrong and it came out really good. I didn't add bacon and didn't feel it was needed. I also used about twice the amount of kale the recipe calls for. I sauteed the kale for a few minutes as I hate raw kale. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

I didn't make any changes but in future I would add a bit more Kale. I made this for my supper club and it was a hit. Since I had to transport this dish I cooked the carrots & beans ahead of time put them in a bowl. I cooked the bacon and chopped the remaining ingredients placed them in separate containers so that I could finish this dish later at the same time as the main meal was being prepared. I did reheat the carrots & beans at the time of putting it all together. Read More

So good! I steamed the green beans and carrots for less than 10 minutes to keep them firmer and with more color. I used powdered ginger. I used a couple of tablespoons of yellow onion since that was all I had. Skipped the bacon and sprinkled a bit of tarragon during the final toss in the skillet! I will definitely be doing this again.

My family liked this recipe. I didn't have green onion so I chopped up some vidalia. I skipped the bacon and added slivered almonds instead of ground almonds. I recommend doubling the kale. I will make it again. Read More
