    I love sautéed kale and the butternut squash was a nice addition. I’m one to alter recipes to my taste and keep it simple, so I sautéed fresh garlic in olive oil, then threw in the kale and some sea salt. Then I removed the kale, added a little salted butter, tossed in the squash, and just used a little smoked paprika instead of chili powder (I really wasn’t in the mood for the cumin flavor since I eat Mexican Food all the time). It was delicious!

    i changed the recipe up a bit it didnt say to add anything when searing the kale so i added garlic salt and pepper and it came out divine and instead of chilli flakes to the butternut i added a masala spice blend has a nice bite definately will be making more

    I wound up following the link at the end of this recipe for butternut squash and kale quesadillas and oh my gosh with the addition of a touch of melted cheese was soooo delicious altogether!

    Great. It was very delicious and could probably pass off as breakfast potatoes to kids who don't like vegetables.
