Stir Fried Kale With Sesame Seeds

Kale is currently the only crop available in my garden so I have come up with different ways to make use of it. This Chinese style side dish works really well with steamed fish. It is based on a green bean dish I often cook to go along side crispy duck. The saltiness of the the soy sauce really compliments the kale. Whilst this dish is delicious I am glad I don’t have to live solely off my garden at this time of year. Although it worked for Charlie’s family in Charlie and the chocolate factory. Or was that cabbage?
