Recipe: Kale Tomato Stir Fry

Recipe: Kale Tomato Stir Fry

My mom loved using tomatoes in her stir fries. "Adds instant color, flavor and natural saltiness." The sweet tartness of the tomatoes balances out the hearty, slightly bitter greens. This one features kale and we enjoy it frequently in the fall and winter, but you can also substitute bok choy, cabbage or other seasonal vegetables and greens. Don't overcook the tomatoes at the end or else it become soupy--which has unintended, but still delicious consequences, slurp!
