Cookbook Exchange – Creamy Kale

This year I participated in a Food Blogger cookbook exchange.  I had to give one blogger a cookbook I use and then another blogger provided me with a new cookbook!!  What a great way to meet new bloggers and get to know a bit about them.  I sent Holly from A Baker’s House my favorite Paleo cookbook called Well Fed 2.  I received this cookbook over the holidays from my brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law!  I love this cookbook because it uses simple ingredients to create wonderful tasty meals!!

Cookbook Exchange

Unknown to me, the blogger who received my name sent me Well Fed (the original).  I received this cookbook from Carrie at Poet In The Pantry.  Let me just say, Well Fed is just as amazing as the prequel Well Fed 2 I sent to Holly!  I should add, Carrie is not a Paleo blogger and reached out of her comfort box to select a new cookbook for me and she did AWESOME!!  She has a cute slogan for her blog, “Combing rhyme with reason for the taste bud pleasing”.  Of course the kindergarten teacher in me LOVES her slogan!!

From the Well Fed cookbook we were inspired to make a Creamy Kale side dish.  I would have never thought to add coconut milk to kale!  The recipe called for a lot of spices from a spice mix; however, I just used cinnamon and it turned out amazing!  See below for my easy creation!

Ingredients
1/2 cup coconut cream (from can)
2 TBL coconut oil
1 garlic glove
2 cups kale
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 TBL water
 
Directions
1.  Place kale in a large skillet with water and allow water to steam the kale.
2.  Once kale is wilted, move kale to a corner of pan.
3.  Add in coconut oil and press the garlic into the hot pan.
4.  Once garlic is light brown, mix in with kale.
5.  Mix in coconut cream and cinnamon with the garlic and Kale.
6.  Allow to mix for 2-3 minutes and serve hot.
 
**This recipe can be made with any hearty green leave (ex. spinach).**

    How funny – the Well Fed books were both sent and received. The Kale dish looks great, and I will have to explore the Well Fed books further.
