Steamed Kale with Cashew Cream

Amy:

I have been looking for a tasty way to eat kale and this recipe is the ticket.  I definitely think I could eat this recipe every week, it’s that tasty. 

Cashew cream is a vegan form of “cream” and is really delicious.  It’s simple, quick and easy and has healthy fats for your heart. 

Kale is one of those super foods that are really high in all the good stuff for your body.  Two things I learned about kale recently 1. The calcium it contains is better absorbed than in milk (but there is less in it) and 2. 4 1/2 cup of raw kale has 10 grams of protein which is the amount in a standard serving of meat!  Neat!
