This November issue of the Diner New has lots of new recipes for side dishes to make your celebration meals special. One of my new favorites is this creamy, delicious side. Garlic Creamed Kale. Alone, kale doesn't have much flavor. This way, it tastes all decadent with garlic and cream cheese. Oh yeah. And this couldn't be simpler to put together, You really should add it to your holiday meals!
Garlic Cream Kale
1 large bunch fresh kale
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp refined coconut oil
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
3 tsp minced garlic
8 oz Neufchatel cheese or regular cream cheese
1/3 cup cashew milk
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Trim thick stems from kale. Steam for 5 minutes. Chop into bite sized pieces.
In a skillet, melt butter and coconut oil. Sauté onion over low heat for 10 minutes. Add garlic and sauté another 5 minutes. Add kale, cream cheese and cashew milk. Stir gently to melt the sauce. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.

This recipe tastes luxurious. Definitely like it took much more time to prepare than it does. Plus, it keeps very well too. I even took it in my lunch bag to school. Everyone was asking what smelled so divine. I love the way kale doesn't totally wilt to nothing like spinach. Not being the biggest fan of cooked spinach, this is perfect to me. I will bet you like it too.
