"There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere . . . "
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
We go through a lot of he leafy stuff around here...but I usually get a bit more creative with it than Doo does.
I'm always scouting out new kale recipes, and this one (adapted from Smitten Kitchen) is my current obsession. Ben likes it so much, he's happy to entertain Roman while I make it!
4 cups cooked wild rice
1 tbs butter, divided
1 tbs olive oil
1 large onion, sliced
1 large bunch of kale, shredded
2 cups swiss cheese
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup roasted red pepper
1/2 cup panko crumbs
Prehead oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease an 8x13" casserole.
Heat 1/2 of butter and all of olive oil in a skillet. Add onion and stir, cooking over medium head for about 20 minutes. Add kale and cook for another 5 minutes. Add chopped roasted red pepper and cooked wild rice. Stir in one cup of cheese. Season with paprika, salt and pepper.
Spread mixture into casserole dish. Drizzle with broth.
Top with rest of the cheese. Then sprinkle with panko crumbs. Dot with butter.
So if you scroll down just two post ago you might notice an oddity - an errant post just appeared from our trip to Belize over a year ago! What a funny little quirk, a vacationly blast from the past I suppose, as I make the foray once again to PHONE blogging!
I assume that gem was trapped somewhere in my app (or on La Isla Bonita) and escaped as I started this process over again.
Anyway, I am NOT in Belize (however much I wish to be) and the phone blogging seems to work now.
