It’s unofficially kale week at the Duda household. It seemed like all of the recipes I picked out for this week called for at least 1/2 lb of kale. It might have been my subconscious desperately trying to cleanse my body of everything I ate over the holiday break. Thank you subconscious, thank you. So in addition to my daily green smoothies for breakfast, here’s what on the menu:
- Creamy Fusilli with Beets, Kale, and Pine Nuts
- Hottie Black Eyed Peas With Ginger Mashed Sweet Potatoes & Apples
- Holiday Kale Salad (I cannot recommend this salad highly enough! SO GOOD!! Made it for my non-vegan, non-kale loving family for lunch and they all had second helpings.)
- Sauteed Brussel Sprouts, Garlic and Chickpeas (No official recipe, had it over a friends house and couldn’t get enough of it! Super simple and super good.)
I caught Du adding more kale to the leftover fusilli. I was pretty proud.
After this week, I think I’ll have officially earned this shirt.
