Kale with Gomasio

 I’ve been laying low since Thanksgiving, cleaning my house with abandon, giving away everything the boys and I don’t use. That said, in between sorting stuff and testing desserts for the upcoming holidays, I’ve been relying on some staple seasonal vegetable dishes to take me through the dark season.

This is an easy, family favorite. Just steam the kale and sprinkle with gomasio.
