Just ok

My first time using this particular type of kale.  It wasn't a huge hit (we prefer spinach to kale) but the prep was easy and it was a nice side to the fish we served tonight.  I'd definitely make this with spinach but omit the broth part.

Very good. I used a different kale and vegetable broth and it was quite easy & tasty.

Easy and tasty kale side dish. Remember, cook the shallots on MEDIUM, and stir very frequently, almost constantly, or else they can burn.
