This is delicious! I have an overabundance of kale to use up, and this is a great way to use that two-week old bunch that I thought was beyond hope. I used pre-cooked andouille instead of chorizo, turnips instead of swedes, pinto instead of black beans, and the remains of a small can of tomato paste. That's what was in the house. I wonder, though, given the short amount of cooking time recommended, if the beans called for in the recipe were meant to be the canned sort, rather than dry?
