A Holiday Dish For #Vegans


Coconut “Creamed” Kale

  • olive oil
  • onion, diced
  • garlic, minced
  • kale
  • water, salted
  • coconut milk
  • cardamom
  • cornstarch

Heat olive oil in pot. Saute onion and garlic until onion is tender. Add water and salt and bring it to a boil. Add kale. Cook until as tender as you like it. Drain off water. Mix cornstarch and cardamom with coconut milk. Add to kale and cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened.

People loved this at Thanksgiving, although we decided, at our house, we like regular kale (without the coconut sauce) better.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character takes something serviceable and makes it fancy. Is this a success or not?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I have to confess: To me, making food fancy is adding chocolate and maybe some whipped cream.

      Heee! But not even I would eat chocolate-covered kale. 😉 Ooo, wasn’t that chocolate the Irish Rover guy gave us DIVINE?
