Sara the music teacher's Kale Recipe

You need some kale. Cut it into 1 inch wide strips. Then what you do is boil the kale with salt and with red paper flakes for about 45 minutes until the kale is really tender. While the kale is boiling put some goat cheese on a slice of thick crusty bread. And poach or fry an egg. Then get a bowl, put the bread on the bottom, then the kale, then the egg on top. Last, grate some parmesan cheese on top and salt to taste.
