Whenever I made Asian food I like to have a vegetable side dish in addition to rice. Many times I make steamed broccoli or stir fry vegetables. Sometimes I want to have something a little different. This past weekend I was making a tofu dish that I normally serve with sauteed spinach. It just so happened I was out of spinach.
I did have a bag of fresh kale so used that instead and added some Asian flavors to it. It softened up some but was still more firm then the spinach normally is. I enjoyed the flavor from the soy sauce and the sesame oil. It paired really well with the jasmine rice and tofu.
