HEY!

I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!

A Recipe and a New House Rule



He who thinks it will probably be OK to cook up a big bunch of kale with beans and quinoa and caramelized onions and carrots and spices without washing said kale thoroughly because the salad spinner is kind of a pain to clean-
-eats gritty but otherwise delicious kale and quinoa concoction all week as penance. 

Oh well. I do pretty well in the kitchen most of the time. Can't wait to do this "recipe," if you can call it that, again some time without the dirt. It really tastes pretty good. 

Kale and Stuff
-1 big bunch of kale, washed and chopped
-3 or 4 carrots, diced
-1 big onion, chopped
-2 or 3 cloves of garlic, minced
-olive oil
-4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
-1 can of garbanzo beans
-salt and pepper
-Sriacha or your favorite hot sauce.

Get two of the cups of chicken broth going in a big pot and chuck in the kale and the can of garbanzos. Get it going at a covered simmer and forget about it. Put the olive oil in a small pot with the garlic, onions and carrots and saute until soft and browned. Add all of this to the kale. Use the same small pot to bring the other two cups of broth to a boil and add the quinoa- simmer 10-15 minutes or until done, than add the quinoa to the big pot with everything else. Salt and pepper to taste, serve with Sriracha or other hot sauce. Any sort of meat, egg, or tofu goes really nicely alongside this for more protein.  

Serves four as a side, two as a main dish, or one person over and over again if he doesn't wash the grit out of the kale. Crunch, crunch, crunch.
