I’ve been collecting recipes for a long, long time. I cut them out of magazines and newspapers with every intention of using them, but I never do!
They’ll collect dust no longer though, I will start randomly selecting one of my many recipes in order to challenge myself and break outside the norm.
This recipe came from The Athlete’s Plate; it seemed like it might be a good solution to the problem that is kale, but spoiler alert: it wasn’t great. However I do have plenty of suggestions for making it fantastic!
The rules are I have to follow the recipe as-is, and then I’ll let you know how it went, whether I liked it, and if I have any suggestions.
I think the key to making this recipe great, it making everything a little bit smaller and more mixable. I would suggest shredding the chicken, and mixing it into pureed sweet potato/kale. I’m not exactly sure what the “Risotto” part of the recipe is (other thank soaking up the liquid), but if you puree the sweet potato and the kale together I think it will create a much more balanced and palatable flavor. I look forward to trying this again with these edits.
Final Review:(2 / 5)
This recipe, as is, it lacking. I’m sure the nutritional benefits are great, but food should taste and feel great as well.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
