I can’t remember when was the last time I ate kale! I can’t get kale here in Gulbene!

This bunch of Kale (actually 3 bunches) I got as a barter. Helped with photography work. There are two things I love to make: green smoothie or creamed greens. Since smoothies usually aren’t keto and I didn’t have other ingredients to make a smoothie… remains – creamed greens!

This recipe is simple and good if you have greens but don’t know what to do with them. I use to make it with kale, beet greens or chard.
