Kale and Matchstick Carrots

SAVE THIS RECIPE SAVED! REMOVE THIS RECIPE ADD TO MEAL PLAN

This is a SUPER EASY recipe and a great introduction to greens for kids. The stir fry sauce and honey adds a nice sweetness to the kale and carrots. You can buy packaged matchstick carrots which are already prepared or whole carrots can easily be prepared by shredding over with a coarse grater. One of my tasters whose mom told me that she did not generally like greens, REALLY liked this (her mom almost fell off the chair!!)

This is a great side fast side dish to add to almost any meal.
