  1. These sound wonderful! I love throwing bowls together without grains. Sometimes I’ll just do ground beef, mushrooms and a cooked green veggie. Drizzle it all with a little melted Kerrygold. So simple and delicious!

  2. Oh my gosh! I made this for dinner tonight. At first, my 6 year old son protested. Two bites in, and I caught him taking the pieces of kale out of the bowl and enjoying the kale-bits on their own…YES! He enjoyed the whole meal! (The store was out of kumquats, so we were down that yummy detail.) My husband finished off the dish, and he said he’d like to have it again. Thank you. Thank you so much! I love delicious, healthy finds.

  3. Kari and Lauren,

    I just wanted to thank you for another fantastic recipe. I had never had kumquat (can you believe it?!) But, thought I would try this dish. AHHHHMAAAAAZING! Even my ultra picky, doesn’t like anything healthy 14 YO daughter loved it! She keeps asking when we’re having it again! I love kale, and the sausage with the ginger and turmeric were a fantastic flavor! My second batch I added some fennel seeds to the meat and it was awesome! By the way, I went out and got my OWN kumquat tree so I can munch on them whenever I want! lol You guys are spot on with these recipes! Keep em coming!
