Author Notes: This fun recipe was the very first recipe that I created when I wanted to "try" kale. I had read so much about how it was a Superfood and it was so healthy for me, but I didn't know how to "give it a go". I started with my favorite spices and added in some carrots and when I introduced my palate to Kale for the first time, I was super happy with this super food!Kristin
