Steamed Chopped Kale with Almonds


Steamed Chopped Kale with Almonds

This recipe offers another opportunity to use steamed chopped kale in an easy to make side dish. It is healthy and tasty. I chop my almonds in my Sunbeam Oskar Jr. Chopper Plus mini food processor that allows me to chop a small amount of nuts. I freeze the chopped nuts that I don't use right away.
