Because I couldn't add cheese to this dish (for the person I was making this) I was worried it could be a little 'shallow' re ingredients. Added some [separately] fried mushrooms (with red wine, soy, and a touch of sugar) to the kale mix and threw in some of the cherry tomatoes to cook as well. Add some fresh rocket afterwards and a sun-dried tomato or two - delicious!
