      I've looked for ways to use it up. I found a good recipe on whole foods market for lemon-ricotta kale dip. I guess you could use it as a spread.

      Ingredients
      1 bunch green kale, stems and tough ribs stripped out and discarded, leaves sliced
      1 small onion, sliced
      4 garlic cloves
      3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
      1 1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
      Juice and zest of 1 lemon
      1/4 teaspoon sea salt
      1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

      Method
      In a large saucepan, combine kale, onion, garlic and 1/4 cup water. Set over medium heat, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are very tender, about 12 minutes; add more water a tablespoon at a time if the pan dries out. Transfer vegetables and any liquid in the pan to a food processor and let cool a few minutes. Add ricotta, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and zest, salt and cayenne. Process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and serve.
