Celebrategreen This yummy recipe was created by Wenonah Michallet-Ferrier and is published in the incredible new book I recently received, "Celebrate Green: Creating Eco-Savvy Holidays, Celebrations & Traditions for the Whole Family" by Corey Colwell-Lipson and Lynn Colwell. I can’t wait to try it and it's perfect for the fall veggie, kale.
