  • Salt and pepper - to taste
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 2 cups packed Olivia's Organics Baby Kale - chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh sage - chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • In a sauté pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook the onion for 5 minutes. Add the kale, sage and thyme, cooking until kale is wilted. 
  • In a pot, melt the butter and stir in the flour. Stir and cook for a few minutes until thick and slightly browned. Mix in both the almond and coconut milk until sauce is smooth. Let cool.
