Hotchpotch of Curly Kale


I’ve really been doing so many recipes recently that it’s hard to remember them all! I did this one a couple of weeks ago, it’s kind of a glorified mashed potatoes with almost pureed kale and piece of hot dogs. Kind of satisfying in that rustic “peasant” way as Vincent calls it.

Every now and again you run into a total train wreck when you try new recipes. I will chalk most of the blame up to my inexperience with artichokes but I found the proportions all over the place, the cooking time under and the seasoning lacking. For a book that in some ways lacks in vegetable heavy dishes this one should have really combatted that deficit. Unfortunately, it just didn’t come together for me.
