It wasn't my favorite, either, and as I've seen elsewhere in a lot of "healthy" sources, the recipe was a little wonky. Where they got the idea for 12 cups of kale, I can't fathom. I used maybe 1/4 of that, and there was more than enough greenery. The major problem, though, fell to flavor. One of the commenters said that the dish was kind of bland and grassy., and while I don't think bland is accurate, dropping sage on top of kale outside of a spicy broth seems to have done nothing so much as to make everything taste incredibly floral. This was probably exacerbated by choosing to use a biere de garde in place of the red that was called for, but that kind of substitution usually works for me.
V's roast chicken, on the other hand, came out beautifully.
