At Dinnertime
  • Cook sausages: Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. With a fork, pierce sausages all over; place on a broilerproof rimmed baking sheet. Broil, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Cook kale and beans: While sausages are cooking, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add kale, garlic, and 1/2 cup water; season with salt and pepper. Cover skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until kale is wilted and tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and rinse beans; add to skillet along with vinegar. Cook uncovered, tossing gently, until beans are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Serve: Cut sausages, and serve on a bed of kale and white beans.

I want to print this recipe without printing the entire page including ads, etc. I wish there was a "Print" option.

I wish MS would list the nutritional information as well. I like the recipes but most often I can't use them 'cause I have no idea how to judge. Even if she wanted to join the Weight Watchers program it would be so much healther and much more people would benefit.

looking for better meals as I'm a diabetic-this sounds good and low carb...never have had kale-but I like spinach and collard greens-any ideas on this site where to find nutritional info on these recipes?

This was a great meal! I am a vegetarian so I substituted the sausage for fake Italian sausages. It was simple but very filling.

As I was cooking this I was feeling pretty disappointed by my choice for dinner that night. It's hard to get excited about kale. But it is actually a darn tasty meal! I went back for seconds. Oh- and I substituted sweet Italian turkey sausage and it was great. I got bagged pre-chopped kale which saved a bunch of time. Very easy to make!
