Kale, yeah, it’s FRIDAY!
Way to go, y’all, we’ve practically made it to the weekend.
And speaking of kale, can I share a kale confession?
This is a safe place, after all, right?
I don’t really like kale.
I don’t want it in my Caesar salad.
I don’t want it massaged with lemon olive oil.
And I really don’t want it in chip form (side story: I made my one and only batch of kale chips early in my first trimester…hot kitchen, baking kale, nauseous baby momma…I couldn’t stomach even trying one and had to immediately throw them all away).
If I’m gonna eat kale, I want it hidden.
I’ll tolerate it snuck into a soup with a lot of other business going on or slipped into a smoothie if there’s plenty of fruit to cover it’s pungent flavor.
And that’s the kind of recipe I have for y’all today.
A casserole that allows you to fill your kale quota without having to actually taste any kale.
It’s a kale recipe for those of y’all that aren’t kale people.
Oh, and it’s 100% Paleo and Whole 30.
And dang delicious.
There’s just something about a good ol casserole that hits the spot at the end of a chilly, blustery winter day.
Whether it’s loaded with Tex-Mex fixins or spaghetti squash or a faux lasagna, I love em all.
Chicken, beef, eggs, seafood, or veggies, there’s something so comforting about a bubbling dish of deliciousness.
And in my household, it’s a win-win for everyone.
I have a one-dish meal that’s loaded with nourishing trifecta- protein, carbs, fat- that I can make ahead of time and freeze portions of if leftovers linger a little too long.
Mr. HHT digs having his entire meal in one bowl, aka meal mush, as he calls it.
And McNugget enjoys all the components, though I’m not serving this one up to him yet since it has added salt (infants’ kidneys are still developing through their first year, so salt needs to be limited).
In addition to a healthy, happy household, this casserole is super simple!
How easy peasy paleo is this?
And this dish is super versatile, too!
Here’s a few tips and variation ideas:
