Sauteed Kale with Peppers and Peanuts {recipe}

Side dish: Dino kale, yellow peppers, salted peanuts, garlic salt. #vegan #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofig

 

I don’t often make side dishes. We are a one pot meal type of family. If I do make a side it’s just a “sauteed garlicky green”. While this might fall into that category, the additions of peppers and peanuts just made it much more then another “garlicky green” side dish. Chomping into a pepper was like a burst of sunshine! Something we definitely need in the mid-atlantic/northeast. The amount of snow we have been getting plus ice storms has me craving warm weather and sunshine. Two things I’m not totally fond of! Is this a sign of old age that I’m against the winter and snow for the first time in my life? I hope not! The salted peanuts added a nice texture and taste to the whole thing. Instead of adding chopped garlic I used garlic salt instead. I’ll admit to not wanting to chop garlic. I served this along side our weekly meal of rice and beans. It worked beautifully together. Especially the peanuts with the seasoned beans!  I’ve already purchased more peppers and kale to make this again. I’m (maybe) looking forward to the summer months (?) when I have kale and peppers growing in my garden. I’ll be able to eat this whenever I feel like it!

  1. *Not all garlic salt is the same. My favorite brand for garlic salt is Simply Organic. It has little bits of parsley in it and its just perfect.
