Dec 17, 2018 Recipe: Creamed Kale

Usually words like "creamy" and "creamed" mean high fat, high calories. Traditional recipes for creamed greens like spinach often start out with a hefty dose of butter and are finished with a cup or more of heavy cream. This takes our healthy green veggies and fills them with saturated fat that far outweighs the vitamins and fiber we’re getting from the vegetables. Our version of Creamed Kale uses Greek yogurt and parmesan cheese to get still get that smooth texture. Make sure this dish makes it to your holiday table this season!


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 Vidalia onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced
