Comments

In February, I was teaching a Cooking Matters class to a group of people from the Micronesian Islands, this recipe was one of their favorites of the series. A couple of people said, I didn't know kale could taste so good!

I love this recipe so much! I could eat it every night!

This is a really tasty meal. We have been doing this recipe with fourth graders and the absolutely love it. We have been preparing it with broccoli slaw and they think it is a noodle stir fry. This is a must try!

I make this recipe all the time.  I grate my carrots.  So good! I could eat these greens everyday!

Tastes Great! This dish has a strong vegetable flavor and the garnish matches very well with the veggies.  The vegetables were very yummy and not soggy! Definitely recommend this dish to anyone who loves vegetables!
