Recipe Notes

Kale is a great vehicle for other terrific flavors.  The bitterness of kale is offset well by other great flavors, especially a bit of sweetness.  This recipe is a great example with the umami-sweetness of roasted garlic and a bit of salt and honey.  In fact, this sauce would go really well with any slightly bitter greens, including collards, spinach, and turnip greens. Serve the greens alongside some jasmine rice to help soak up any extra sauce.
