Kale, Chorizo, and Beans

This recipe is pretty easy, pretty yummy, and pretty well... pretty-- look at those hearty fall colors!

It makes 3 big bowls of comforting, cozy yum. I use vegetable flakes in this, but you could totally substitute a cup of veggie stock if you can't find them.

  •  1 package soy chorizo (the kind I use is by Cacique and it's only $1.08 at Walmart for 5 servings-- woohoo!)
  • 5 tightly packed cups of kale (I use the kind that comes in a big bag and just go through it to pick out the stem-y parts and wash it)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable flakes, re-hydrated in 1 cup warm water
  • 1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • Brown the chorizo according to the package directions in a non-stick skillet or wok.
  • Add the kale and beans and the veggie flake water.
  • Cover and simmer a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until kale is bright green and everything is warmed through.
  • Enjoy with a piece of crusty bread-- so yum!
