When a recipe calls for an entire bunch of parsley, an entire ear of corn, or an entire pineapple I am so happy because I don't like to have half a can of beans or half a zucchini left over from a recipe. Maybe they'll be used, but it annoys me when these halves go to waste. If you use an entire bunch of kale, you don't have any leftover and therefore you don't have any worry about the leftover not being used.
This recipe only calls for part of a cauliflower, and I almost wasn't going to make this because I didn't have a plan for the rest of the cauliflower. That sounds a little ridiculous but I didn't want to have less than one cauliflower sitting around. However, I am so glad I did end up making this because it turned out great. It was easy, no oven required, and quick.
