Comments: It is sometimes difficult to find suitable vegetable which pacifies Pitta without aggravating Vata. Kale and zucchini fall into that category. Kale is highly prized for incorporating the essential bitter taste in the diet which is hard to get except through coffee and tea (maybe that is why we crave them apart from the caffeine content).  This tasty dish can be taken as a complete meal and incorporates all the macro-nutrients as well as many micro-nutrients.
