Yellow Split Pea Dal and Kale

November 8, 2010


I have  this  meal I have about twice a month. Brown rice, yellow split pea dahl done my way and some spinach. Last week I saw fresh Kale in the supermarket and I took up some. When I go to NYC to eat there is always an abundance of Kale or some seitan dish in my plate and it seems Kale is the” it” green leafy vegetable for vegans. I still do not know how I feel about Kale. I think it is really good and it has so many vitamins and minerals but…maybe I need to put lots of garlic in the dish and sauce it more more but, I like my leafy greens just kissed by the heat so I can taste the natural taste and this is what I did here. I added a few chopped West Indian Pimentos and I appreciated it with the rice and dal very much.


I usually opt for yellow split pea dal because I love the flavour from the yellow split peas. In Barbados we do not eat dal really but the yellow split peas are cooked in the rice and that dish is very interesting.

Anyways I busy today that is why the post is a little short but expect  more interesting post all week and do have a fun and safe week I am already looking forward to the weekend.

    Dhal, rice and sauteed spinach is a combo that is well loved in places like TT and Guyana. You make me want to eat this now 🙂

    Kale is the best topping for any soups and dhal.

    Kale is one of my favorite greens. Ever tried banana, avocado, mango, water, kale smoothie?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    I agree, though I’m more bothered by the cool pinkishness and glaring, focused brightness of the light. There’s gotta be a better option, but instead of wasting hours finding them I bought incandescents and I’ll try again in a few years. LED technology and light quality for home bulbs has gotten so, so much better in the past few years, I hope the same will happen with Christmas lights.
