First off sorry about the picture. On this particular night dinner was done around 7P.M. and the sun had already set, leaving me less then happy with the photos. Inside food photography's hard with out special lighting.
But on another note dinner was AMAZING and super healthy too! What more can you ask for in a dish? Lean protein paired with Kale which by the way is a super food and taste amazing cooked with the clams.
We paired this with a little toasted baguette for soaking up the broth at the bottom of the bowl and a nice glass of wine. The best part this meal is done in 25 minutes (other then the soaking of the clams)! Totally gourmet weeknight meal!
This dish came together as a duel effort. We where aiming for a quick weeknight dinner with the least amount of dishes possible and the middle child had been begging for clams for weeks, I know my kids aren't quite typical but my secret was consistently offering whatever my husband and I ate. I never once offered the kids the option of a special meal and the kids will eat close to anything as long as it taste's good. The only down side to this is if the food doesn't taste good the kids have no problem saying so and I have been left on a few occasions trying to cover up what I could barely eat myself when we have been over to someones house to eat.
Over cooked, under seasoned food is hard for the palate.
