Comfort food involving Kale?

Brunch today:

Home made Polenta topped with:

About 1 1/2 cups Kale,
About 1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 clove garlic
About 1 tbsp minced red onion
salt
pepper
about 1 tbsp tomato paste mixed with some water
All sauteed together until the Kale is wilted, and veggies are soft.

I put this on top of home made polenta (yes, my obsession continues).
And sprinkled some hot sauce on top.

mmmmm......

This was the first time I've used Kale. It was really good. I love the color of Kale -it's such a nice rich dark green color. Looks nice with the polenta and mushrooms :-).

Tastes good too.

I know...this is a bit weird to be eating at 10am. Ah well.

OK, the word is not weird.....the word is unique...hmmmm???? Actually it sounds positively scrumptious....
Note to self: Must start using up that polenta mix sitting in my cupboard.

I love KALE!!! Its one of our favorites!! I have some good recipes with kale that I must share with you...! It is soooooo good for you too! And not weird for brunch, people eat spinach quiche for breakfast and eggs florentine etc. And in mexico breakfast involves onion, mushrooms and other veggies often (as I have learned living with a mexican!!! If I could have one morning without smelling onions sauteeing I'd be overjoyed!!)
