I love kale. I eat it almost every day. Really. I eat it with my eggs in the morning. I make green soup for lunch. And it usually shows up on our dinner plates in some form or another. And when I just don’t feel like cooking, I make Kale and Sausage.
I almost always have a package of sausage in the freezer. We buy an organic chicken apple sausage. And kale grows year round in the backyard. So you could call this my go-to-meal when I’m feeling uninspired or just plain lazy.
There’s really nothing to this. So simple to prepare. And it’s delicious, savory, and satisfying. My favorite addition is some yummy, leftover sweet potatoes. The sweetness of the yams adds a nice touch. I love salty and sweet together.Print

Thanks for the recipe. I just made this tonight. We’ve been eating sausage and couscous and this is a great new non-carb option for us. If I don’t want to use coconut aminos or soy sauce do you recommend something else? Have you done it plain before? Thanks again.
So glad that you like it. My family does too. You could skip the coconut aminoes and just season with a nice seasoning salt like Herbamare. Thanks for the feedback!
Can you tell me how many servings this recipe makes? My husband is on a Ketogenic diet and it would help to know servings and even the nutrition data, but I can figure that out.
