My husband and I, we used to have it normally on weekends, on lunch, we both like it so much. I learned this from my husband, he cooks delicious food and we love to try new recipes.
Kale is slightly bitter in taste, so in this dish we add more spinach than kale. It is a simple yet yummy vegetable.
I used to feel so tired, then I got to know that iron deficiency can make us feel tired. I was deficient in iron, so to keep my iron levels normal and energy high I started eating foods rich in iron, for example spinach or/and kale, as well as food that helps to absorb iron, such as citrus fruits and garlic.
So we invented this high-iron dish of spinach and kale. This helps me in maintaining my iron levels normal and I don't have to take iron tablets.
