This is a favorite recipe of my mom’s and is always a crowd-pleaser!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Dinosaur kale, much like most other leafy green vegetables is a great source of vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin A. The combination of healthy fats such as those found in the avocado and olive oil in this dish also helps the body absorb the fat-soluble vitamin A more readily, and contributes to the body's immunity, vision, and bone health.
