Until late in my life, I didn’t really eat greens, and when I’d had them they’d always been Collard greens cooked forever with ham hocks or salt pork – delicious, but something I’ve avoided because of the higher fat and long cooking process. If I had only known then, what I know now: that Braised Turnip Greens are quick, delish & healthy, I’d have been eating them a lot more.
Always looking for new recipes using Kale, I came across these little Shrimp and Kale bundles. A few simple ingredients in a fancy package, what caught me by surprise was how incredibly, indescribably fantastic these are. This recipe has more than just looks, the bundles seal in and intensify the flavors.
I didn’t use to care for Minestrone. And that’s putting it mildly. I’d had a couple at restaurants that weren’t great and I never explored it further. What I had was kind of muddy and dull in flavor and that pasta in it? Ummm, no thank you! This recipe for Winter Minestrone with Sausage & Beans is the one that turned me around. If you’re like I was, it’s might be time to revisit Minestrone.
