I had it all going on yesterday. Tomato jam, caramelized onions, apple brandy sauce, vegan lentils, turkey butt & bean soup, and kale.
Yes tons of kale. I asked for six bags of kale, cleaned. What I ended up with was a case of kale. Yes it was cleaned but it was not stemmed. I didn't have any kids to put to stemming on the front porch so Desi and Tyler offered to help. 30 minutes later the kale was "picked" and on the stove cooking. I cooked it with some smoked turkey, bacon renderings, and hot sauce. Two hours later it was delicious and enough to feed a small army.
With some of the kale I made a pot of wonderful lentil stew.
About 4 cups of uncooked fresh kale (if uncleaned you have to get the dirt out and remove the stem)
2 cups of lentils
1 cup shredded carrot
3 TBS Cajun blackening seasonings (we make our own so you have to adjust this per spice level)
2 TBS Gumbo File Powder
4 TBS ketchup
1/4 chopped white onion
Salt to taste (be careful if your blackening seasonings have salt in it)
Put everything into a pot with water to cover
Bring to boil then reduce to simmer for about 1 hour. You may have to turn heat back up to reduce water, Stew should be thick.
