wishing all of you all of the best in the coming year.

for new year’s eve i made this decidedly decadent creamed kale with bone-in rib-eyes.  cheers!!


creamed kale with parmesan (serves 6)
1 T olive oil
2 leeks, white & light green parts only, thinly sliced
1 1/2 pints heavy cream
1 1/2 lbs. lacinato kale, stems discarded, leaves coarsely chopped
pinch freshly grated nutmeg
salt & pepper to taste
chili flakes to taste (optional)
1/2 C parmesan

heat olive oil in saute pan.  add leeks & saute over low heat until soft.  remove from pan.  add cream to pan and heat over medium heat until reduced by nearly half, about 15 minutes.

meanwhile, bring a pot of salted water to a boil.  add kale.  boil until just tender, about 3 minutes.  drain and rinse under cold water.  squeeze remaining water from leaves.  add to cream.  add nutmeg, leeks, salt, pepper, chili flakes (if using) & parmesan, stirring well.  let simmer for 10 – 15 minutes so that flavors meld and sauce thickens.

    Kale or “borecole”, from the Dutch word “Boerenkool”. Didn’t know it was so healthy (as wikipedia says). Ionce made a Boerenkool Soufflé for Rieneke.
