Recently, I went to the store to buy frozen spinach. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) they had run out of frozen spinach completely.

It was then that I saw a bag of organic frozen chopped kale, and I thought, why not use that instead?!

To be honest, I don’t eat a lot of kale. I might put a little bit in a salad once in a while, or fry up some crispy kale in the cast iron skillet, or make my Microwave Kale Chips, but it’s not a food I eat regularly.

I had planned to make my Low Carb Spinach Gratin, but since I couldn’t get spinach, I thought I would try something new, with kale!

One of the reasons I don’t serve a lot of kale is because my kids don’t really like it. Who can blame them though, I’m pretty sure I would have turned my nose up at kale when I was a kid too.

However, I have found a way to get my kids to eat veggies they don’t really enjoy – add cheese!! 😉

This recipe has cream cheese, which makes the kale deliciously creamy.

Plus, the Low Carb Creamed Kale is so easy to make, it is the perfect side dish for a quick weeknight dinner.
