Kale. I’ve seen pictures across the Internet and a little here and there in my recipe book collection. But until today I have never had it before.
I made quick work to fix this when I found some at market this afternoon.
For this Meat-free Monday dinner I made marrows stuffed with kale palak a very easy and satisfying rice dish.
Cook 1 cup of Basmati as per instructions and set aside.
6 marrows, boiled.
Two onions, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon powdered ginger (you can use fresh if you like)
2 teaspoons Garam Masala
1 teaspoon powdered coriander
1 teaspoon powdered cumin
2 teaspoons powdered turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (you can use large diced if you like)
4 cups cleaned kale
Saute the onion in a little bit of coconut oil. Once it starts to soften, add in the garlic and all the spices. Cook the onion spice mix for a few minutes to release all the aromas before adding the tomato paste and finally the tomatoes. Stir in the rice.
Heat a new pan and fry the kale with a little coconut oil until it starts to soften. Add the palak rice.
Scoop out the flesh of the marrows and mix into the palak. Finally, fill the marrows with the kale palak, being careful to keep the marrows in tact.
We had these beauties with a small amount of hummus which made absolute magic with my taste buds.
