I do these random dinners quite often. They’re simple, quick, and satisfying.
- 1 carrot, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 fennel bulb, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 head of kale, leaves stripped from stems and torn into smallish pieces
- 8oz pre-cooked chicken sausage (or 8oz marinated firm tofu)
- 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder (or 1 tablespoon cornstarch)
What I did:
- Heat the olive oil in a large pan on medium heat, add onion, carrot, fennel, and sausage (if using tofu, add at the end to keep it from disintegrating) and saute for about 3 minutes.
- Add broth, kale, seasonings of choice (about 2 teaspoons, depending).
- Cover and allow to cook for about 15 minutes, add arrowroot/cornstarch and allow to thicken for about 5 minutes.
- Serve over rice or pasta.
Like I said, this is really a standard meal for me. About 3/4 of what I get in the CSA box can be used in this recipe.
