This side dish was the result of trying something with kale and it backfiring rather spectacularly. I had planned a rice side to go with an aromatic Vietnamese pork dish, thinking that dehydrated kale would make a good rice garnish. I was wrong … really, really wrong. So instead, I threw in some sweet Thai chili and turmeric … which worked together exceptionally well!
We had this as a side dish last week with Dizzy Pig Peking duck breast. After posting about that meal, I had a couple of requests for the risotto recipe … happy to oblige! This is really tasty, and goes well as part of a main course or a dish in its own right.
