I’m often told that I’m the worst vegetarian ever. It might be true. Especially in the middle of winter, I have less than zero interest in a salad; I’ll go out of my way to discourage others from eating salads too.
But there are legitimate health reasons (vitamins, nutrients, calories) to eat vegetables. I guess. Imagine my surprise when a non-recipe that’s basically kale and pinto beans turned out to be my favorite thing to eat this week.
Let’s be clear: eating kale is not an interesting thing to do. Subverting expectations about a core part of your identity? Better.
Let’s Cook This
- 1T olive oil
- 1 bunch kale, washed, cored, and chopped
- 2 cans pinto beans, drained
- 1/2c Mexican blend cheese
- Tomatillo (green) salsa to taste
Heat the oil on medium. Add the kale and beans, stirring occasionally until melted. Garnish with cheese and salsa.
