Savory Breakfast

Today's breakfast skewed savory. Coffee, of course. Buttered (Smart Balance) honey wheat English muffin. Low-fat cottage cheese with olives, EVOO, za'atar, and hot sauce.

Kale in Almond Butter Sauce

Today, I cooked the kale the same as yesterday, but lowered the temperature to low medium and lengthened the cook time to 6 minutes covered and six minutes uncovered. I also used almond butter instead of peanut butter. The garnish is chopped tomato. The kale was much more tender, but I think I like peanut butter sauce better.

Kicking Up Kale

No photo, but I made a bowl of kale for myself for lunch today. I sauteed a minced garlic clove in a little hot olive oil until slightly brown. Into that, I threw three or so big handful of chopped washed kale, a few tablespoons of chicken broth, a tablespoon of peanut butter, plus salt and black pepper. I covered it and steamed the kale at low heat for 5-6 minutes. I then uncovered it, mixed it up, and threw in another couple of tablespoons of chicken broth and a tablespoon of rice vinegar. Uncovered, it cooked another five minutes, stirred occasionally, until sauced and tender, not soupy. Delicious. It probably would be great over rice.

Homemade Meatball Sliders

We keep homemade meatballs in our freezer. The last two meatballs from the container that we'd just opened made two delicious sliders on English muffins for lunch today. I topped both with a little fresh mozzarella.
