Red Peppers, Eggplant, Kale

I bought these items from the supermarket yesterday with no idea in my mind of what to make. I was at least going to roast the red peppers. Other than that I am not sure.

Any suggestions plus a protein? Thanks.

You could make a variation of my Grilled Zucchini Boats. Roast the peppers, steam the kale to wilt, and wing the rest You can add cooked sausage to the mix.

What is it with kale these days? When I was young it was only considered fit for cattle feed but it's been "discovered" and found a new career as a television personality.

When I was a member of the veg box scheme I used to get kale and did my best with it, using all sorts of recipes but never managed to make it edible. I eventually put it on my "No thank you" list. One of the very few veggies that I don't like.

I would make a simple baked version of eggplant parm, use the sweet red pepper in the tomato sauce.

I would cook the kale like spinach, very little water, lots of chopped garlic, crushed red pepper, a knob of butter and a splash of lemon juice or vinegar. If you want it to be the main attraction top it with a poached egg.
