  1. this sounds really good! how many servings is this recipe? im thinking to double it and maybe hand blend? any thoughts?

  2. Well, I've been excited to make this since I first pinned it on Pinterest months ago. I fixed it today and my husband and I almost died. It. Was. So. Spicy!! We seriously choked it down sharing a huge glass of milk to help with the burn. My husband actually asked me if I was trying to kill us! haha. But seriously, I won't fix this again. 🙁

    1. Mel, This dish is a little on the spicy side…some like it hot, others prefer mild. The amount of spice can easily be tweaked according to taste. Also the red pepper can be completely eliminated. 🙂

  3. I made this yesterday, and it was delicious!! Based on previous comments, however, I doubled the recipe and omitted the red pepper flakes and sea salt. In their place, I added about a half teaspoon of mild Harissa and the kale about an hour before it was done. The kale still had a little crunch to it. I'm from the South, i.e. simply wilted doesn't get it :-)! I will definitely make it again.

    1. Laverne, lol…I’m also from the south. Here we typically cook greens until they’re falling a part! I’ve learned to adapt because of the health benefits of not over cooking. 🙂

  4. This was great – I have made it twice, although I did notice that the recipe yielded less than I expected – about 4 1-1/4 cup servings instead of 6, but adding more vegetable stock seemed to help the second time around. LOVE the heat. Used 1 regular sweet potato and one purple one to add some more color to the dish. Great for meal prep all week.

  5. I made it today. Yes, it is spicy. I put organic sour cream (just a bit) in the center, to have a cooling sensation present. Great for cold weather.

  6. I’m excited to try this! I find it so funny how people have such varying degrees with their taste buds. Not sure how 1/4 t. red pepper can possibly overpower anything. Wimps! 😂
