wednesday night dinner: kale stir fry

I'm in the midst of a deep love affair with kale.  This stir fry is a modified version of the flash-fried kale recipe in the February 2011 issue of Vegetarian Times.  I'd eat it every night this week if Kevin would let me get away with it.

[ Ingredients ]
1 lb. asparagus (chopped into 2" - 3" pieces)
8 oz. kale (also chopped into 2" - 3" pieces)
2 medium carrots (sliced)
8 oz. cauliflower (chopped into florets)
1 t. fresh ginger
1 T. olive oil
1 t. soy sauce
1 T. sliced almonds (I prefer the toasted version from Trader Joe's)


  1. There were also 3 cloves of garlic and a drizzle of sesame oil in there too. If you have some coconut oil handy you could do a 1:1:1 ratio of olive/sesame/coconut. That would provide a healthy fatty acid profile and be super tasty!

  2. That looks delicious, and so healthy too! Winning combination :)

    & thanks for the comment you left on my blog recently, I got my boots from New Look for about £30 a few months ago and then they came down to £15 in a sale super recently. I hate it when that happens! lol :)

  6. re: comment #1 -- Ladies and gentleman, meet my boyfriend, Kevin. Apparently this is what happens when I trust him to "watch" the stir fry as I finish up a few pre-dinner tasks.

    Sanam: Thank you thank you thank you for directing me towards New Look. I really might have to snag a pair of those boots for myself. I LOVE the way you've been wearing them.
