Collard Roll-Ups with Coconut Curry Kale

By Diane Hoch
Collard Roll-Ups with Coconut Curry Kale


makes 4
  • 4 large collard leaves
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5 cups purple kale, torn into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 carrot, cut into ribbons with peeler
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish root, grated


To blanch collard leaves: Add about 1 inch of water to a large sauté pan (to coat the bottom with liquid). Bring to a boil. Place a collard leaf in pan and blanch until it turns bright green, about 10-15 seconds on each side. Repeat with remaining leaves. Let cool and then cut out the thick part of the spine, leaving at least 8 inches to fill and roll. Set aside.
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add coconut oil. Once melted, add garlic, orange juice, orange zest, maple syrup, curry powder, and sea salt. Mix well and sauté until mixture begins to bubble, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Add kale and toss to coat. Cook until the kale becomes tender and wilted, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Place collard leaf top-side down on a cutting board. Spread 1/4 of kale sauté in the center of the leaf horizontally. Then add 1/4 of the avocado slices and a 1/4 of the carrot ribbons. Roll the collard leaf around the ingredients from the bottom up, like a sushi roll. Cut any excess from the leaf at the end. Slice with a sharp knife into 1 1/2 inch sections. Sprinkle with freshly grated horseradish and enjoy!

Slow-Cooked Kale, Pancetta, Breadcrumbs
+ Poached Egg

By alexandracooks
Slow-Cooked Kale, Pancetta Breadcrumbs + Poached Egg


makes 2
  • 2 to 3 ounces pancetta, diced into small cubes (use an additional tablespoon of olive oil if you omit the pancetta)
  • 1 pound Tuscan kale, center ribs and stems removed (about 8oz | 250g once trimmed)
  • kosher salt
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 chile de árbol (optional, a pinch of red pepper flakes works nicely, too)
  • 1 cup yellow onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup toasted breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • splash of vinegar
  • freshly cracked black pepper

for the breadcrumbs*

  • 2 cups bread cubes, torn from a fresh or day-old loaf ( suggest sough dough, or substitute nuts) 
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt


Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon kosher salt. Working in 2 batches (or 1 if you’re using a large enough pot), blanch kale for 2 minutes. Drain, let cool, and squeeze out excess water with your hands. Coarsely chop; set aside.
Meanwhile, place the pancetta in a large sauté pan over low heat and cook covered for 15 minutes. Remove cover and cook for about five minutes more or until the fat has rendered and the pancetta is crisp. Remove pancetta with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.
Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan with the pancetta fat and place over medium heat. Add the rosemary sprig and chile (if using), and let sizzle, shaking pan every so often, for about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low and add onion. Season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the garlic. Continue cooking stirring every so often until onion is soft and starting to brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Discard rosemary and chile. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and kale; stir to coat. Season with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring every 5 to 10 minutes, until kale turns almost black and is slightly crisp at edges, about 30 minutes total.
Meanwhile, bring a small shallow saucepan to a simmer. Crack each egg into a small bowl or ramekin. Sprinkle a couple of teaspoons of vinegar into the pot of water. When the kale has cooked for about 25 minutes, adjust the heat of the water so that it’s barely simmering—you don’t want to see any bubbles or movement. Use the handle of a wooden spoon to make a whirlpool in the water, then drop one egg into the center of the whirlpool. Repeat with the other egg. Adjust the heat to keep the water just below a simmer. Set the timer for 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, lift one egg up from the water and shake it. The yolk should jiggle a little bit, but shouldn’t look too loose. When the eggs are cooked to your liking, remove each one with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
When the kale has finished cooking, stir in the breadcrumbs and the pancetta. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Divide the kale mixture between two bowls. Top each with an egg. Season with pinch of salt and pepper.
* To make the breadcrumbs: Place bread in a food processor and pulse until crumbs are coarse. Toast crumbs in about 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, tossing frequently, for about 5 minutes or until crumbs are crunchy and golden brown. Add a little more olive oil if necessary. Season with a pinch of kosher salt, and let cool on a paper towel-lined plate.
