I went to the farmers market a couple of weeks ago and came home with black kale among other things. The next day I tried combining it with (dried) green peas, onions and garlic for a veggie dish not entirely unlikely for a viking setting. I soaked the peas over night and boiled them. Most of the shells came off during the cooking.
I fried onion, garlic and the black kale in butter and added the boiled peas and some salt. The result was good, but I also realized I had made more food than I had aimed for.
The solution to that was making even more food! I boiled pasta, added it to the pea/kale thing and grated some cheese on top. Lunch for me and two portions in the freezer for later use.
