Ingredients
  • 8 large carrots (about 2 lbs), peeled
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 slender leeks (white parts only) thinly sliced, washed and dried
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest; plus 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 large kale leaves, tough stems removed and leaves thinly sliced
Directions
  1. Using a vegetable peeler, slice the carrots into long, thin ribbons.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the raisins, garlic, ginger, lemon zest and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the carrots, kale and 1/2 cup water and cook, stirring or turning with tongs, until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
Tip Fancy but Frugal
  • These delicate, colorful ribbons may look like a four-star restaurant side dish, but a big bowl that serves eight costs just about $5!
