Curly Kale Casserole

Mamas Grünkohlauflauf

Mamas "Curly kale casserole (Grünkohlauflauf)" is one of my favorite dishes and whenever i am away from home 

it reconnects me with my mum and my childhood. The dish consists of only a 

few ingredients but the combination of nutty tasting kale, a good smoked sausage and rich homemade potato mash harmonizes wonderfully. While it is very easy to get curly kale in Germany all year round even if it is only the frozen kind from time to time we had for years here in Cape Town hardly ever the chance to get hold of this tasty and healthy cabbage leaves. But luckily this has changed in recent years as kale has become more and more popular.
