What you do: 

1. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for about 2 mins. until soft, but not brown. Add kale, red pepper flakes,capers and olives. Add salt if needed(olives are salty so be sure and check before adding salt.) Turn kale mixture to coat with oil. Cover and cook,stirring occasionally for 15 to 20 mins.
2. Transfer kale mixture to toasted vegan bread slices.
I know this sounds like a strange sandwich mixture,but do give it a try...I have one 19 yr.old veggie daughter and one 14 yr. old non-veggie daughter...I prepared this for myself and the veggie daughter meanwhile the non-veggie came home and asked to taste because it smelled so good. Now she request that I make this for her also...I may have another veggie-head (as my hubby call us) before long!!TRY!!

This was a bit too salty for my taste, especially with the saltiness of the rye bread added. The underlying tastes were good though, so I'll probably make it again with fewer capers and olives. I did try an experiment with it: made half of it for a sandwich, and half as a topping for pasta (ziti, in this case). It was terrific with the pasta, which also neutralized some of the saltiness.


This really sounds delicious! What a great idea!


So good, and so EASY!  This will be made again in my house for sure.  I served it with some sweet potato fries, and it was a perfect little dinner.  It was a little too salty for my taste, though.  Next time I'll probably halve the amount of olives and cut out the capers completley.  The garlic, oil and red peppers were perfect though!
