Glad to hear that there are others out there who don't like kale. Himself and I have given up trying them. Greens is greens, they all have nutrition, just differing amount of nutrients.

That isn't so much a soup as a very brothy one-pot dish. I've made "ham and beans and collard greens" a lot in the past year. Usually a meaty hambone, although a ham steak or a smoked pork hock work too. Usually collard greens, and usually cannellini beans. Always good. If you aren't watching carbs, the juices are made for sopping up with a piece of crusty bread.

Kayelle, I liked the way you used the smoked turkey wing. Some of the stores around by us sell smoked turkey drumsticks. I should give it a go with that next time!

I haven't even tried kale. Don't like cooked leaves much and I'm not supposed to eat a lot of high fiber foods.

You definitely wouldn't like kale then. I think it has even more fiber (or something) than collard greens or mustard greens. It has always seemed to retain that curly rough texture no matter how long or how I've cooked it. We also just don't like the taste much. I like the bitterness in broccoli rabe (Craig doesn't) but kale just turns me off.

Surprisingly I liked the smoked turkey wing even better than a ham hock for this dish. I think a smoked turkey drumstick would be even better though. Kale has to be cooked a long time compared to other greens. We enjoy the flavor and most of all, that it holds up well. I also particularly like turnip greens for it's peppery flavor and I cooked it only half the time of the kale. I've never liked "mushy" canned black eye peas, and only use frozen as fresh can't be found in these parts. They're cute too.

Thanks for all the interest.

I love using smoked turkey parts in soups and stews. Such a nice flavor.

Not a big kale fan either, I've only had it a few times.

For those of you who don't like kale, my guess is that it wasn't cooked long enough.

Growing up in this town, I have never understood the love of bitter foods that Italians just can't get enough of. Then to offset that they fill up on the sweetest, richest desserts. Completely baffle me.

Left overs again. I'm getting tired of them but I need to eat some of them up before I can cook something new.
