One of my favorite ways to eat kale. I first had this recipe at my grandmother's house as my introduction to kale and I've never looked back. I'm not a huge balsamic vinegar fan so I generally just use a splash of white vinegar instead. It's delicious!

Not my favourite flavours ever. A bit too bitter or pronounced a taste for my palette. I think the flavours of the kale and the vinegar together are a bit much. Maybe if I'd cooked this dish a little longer than the suggested time I would have liked it more.

I just wanted a side veggie to serve with rice and a protein. I tasted it before I added the balsamic vinegar and it was good, however after I added the vinegar it tasted sour! Leave out the vinegar!

I've made this several times and each time it's a huge success! I like to splash mine with a raspberry vinegar at the end of cooking.

I loved this! I added a little honey in the mix, just a drizzle based on what it was being topped with, but absolutely awesome. Thank you. :)

I ran out of fresh garlic, so I sauteed an onion instead, and the recipe tasted great!
