It sounds like a good way to include a leafy green-kale-in a recipe. How does it taste?

Made without animal broth, with a little extra virgin coconut oil, a pinch of pepper (red and black) a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast...YUM!!!!

Oh, and I don't remove the kale stems, ever. :carrot:
