Kale is hearty and healthy, and often teams in winter soups with potatoes and beans. But in this recipe, based on Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, it takes center stage. Quick to prepare it is a pleasant change from other green sides. Don’t let the volume of a one pound bunch of kale scare you off - it cooks down!
