Kolorful Kale

In Healthy Lunches on March 10, 2011 at 2:15 pm

If you’ve had a big big breakfast, this is a good lunch.  Only about 100 calories and you can have it for dinner as a side later.  So colorful too!!!

Butternut and Kale

What’s in it:
  • 2 bunches kale (about 1 pound total), tough stems and ribs stripped out, leaves sliced
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
  • 1 butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 4 pitted dates, very finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

Wilt kale in big pot with 1/2 of broth.  Add squash and cook for 10 minutes.  Combine everything else and boil for 6 minutes.  Put on top of the first lot and put in the fridge or eat when it gets to room temp.

  1. This colorful kale really looks delish! I haven’t had kale in so long, I think I need to try it again with this recipe. Thanks for adding the link to the recipe as well.
