Recipe: Kale Coloré Salad

I've been wanting to try a recipe using kale and am so obsessed with this one inspired by a salad I tried at my friend Erin's potluck dinner! This salad has a sweetness to it and hint of spice, which pairs so nicely with the bitterness of kale.  It's flavorful, packed with nutrients and so pretty to look at! I usually make a big batch on Sundays and portion them out to take to lunch during the week.

Kale Coloré Salad

2 bunches of Kale (it will look like a lot but it wilts down like Spinach)
2 red bell peppers, sliced
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
Cilantro leaves
1 can Corn or Hominy
1/4 cup vegetable stock
1 tbsp of sugar (to taste)
pinch or 2 of crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbsp crushed garlic 

In a large deep pan, heat the veggie broth and garlic together.  Add in the sugar and crushed red pepper flakes. Add in the kale and sautee on low heat until it wilts.   Then add remaining ingredients and toss together on low heat. I add cilantro in the pot and also sprinkle a few more when I plate it.  I love cilantro so I add a lot in. 

Eat warm or cold.
