Simple Sides: Coconut Braised KaleMonday, July 02, 2012
A few months ago I made jerk turkey tenderloins and served them alongside a delicious kale concoction that was braised in coconut milk and some onions & peppers from the roasted turkey. I knew I would have to return back to recreate that as a side dish recipe for The Kitchenista Diaries! Coconut Kale reminds me a lot of creamed spinach, but heartier and sweeter. It's also vegan! You can use any kind of kale with this because the coconut milk cuts into the bitterness of the kale leaf. Sweet onions, ginger, garlic and a hint of lime help to round out the flavors here and make this a perfect complimentary dish to Caribbean meals.
