Although you can find kale in supermarkets year-round, this member of the cabbage family is at its peak flavor in cool-weather months. Kale also brings a good dose of protein and iron to this side dish, and the jalapeño pepper adds a pleasant kick. You can substitute collard greens for kale, if you prefer.
