This delicious, easy to make recipe is great as a side dish, or as vegetarian main served with wild rice.
Served as a side dish with mash potato & sausage casserole. I loved it, was a tasty way to make kale more interesting & the beans add some great nutrients. Kids hated it, but I think that's just because it's kale! Nice recipe, thank you for posting. - 27 Aug 2017
I like this dish very much! It's very tasty! and nutritious, too! One comment for cooking Adzuki —it's taste better if you first heat the adzuki in water till the water boils and immediately drain it, then add fresh water and slowly cook until adzuki is tender. - 15 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was super excited to try this recipe. I changed it up a little based on what i like/had on hand. I added ginger along with the garlic and sauted some shiitake mushrooms before i added the kale. in addition to the other flavorings i added a little sesame oil and shichimi togarashi (a japanese red pepper blend). Like anzu, i also rinsed the beans after boiling and added fresh water. I took some leftovers to lunch the next say and just sliced up some tofu and green onions and drizzled a little soy sauce and sesame oil on the tofu. it was delicious! - 22 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
