Dreaming of Ottolenghi and Amada; stuck on frozen gyoza

I love cooking, but it's been a while since I've cooked on a regular basis (besides throwing together ingredients for salads and pastas) and even longer since I put together a proper meal with courses. I'm a pretty decent cook (and I have a list of favorite blogs, like Smitten Kitchen and 101 Cookbooks) but nothing's clicking, and I want recipes that are complicated and fun and delicious for a change of pace! And so I turn to you, AskMetafilter: help me find awesome, vegetarian, delicious, adventurous dishes to usher in 2014. [more inside]

Convince me that kale can actually be tasty

We get a lot of kale from our CSA, and we pretty much know it's headed for the compost. Have tried many recipes that turn out nasty -- kale chips that won't dry, sauteed kale that's too bitter to choke down, etc. -- and have yet to find anything that gets us excited to use this vegetable, no matter how healthy. (Yes, I do make some green shakes, but one bunch in the freezer can fuel me for a year on that front! We have 3-4 bunches in the fridge right now.) I should say that the one exception was a recipe called "Carolina kale," which involves some stewed tomatoes and cumin, but our experience after making it a few times is that we love it on day 1 but then never want to touch the leftovers, so then that feels like a waste too.

So, metafites, convince me that kale is fit for human consumption! wow me with your best, genuinely delicious, kale recipes, before it's compost time again!

Oh god, not another 1.5 pounds of green beans to dice.

I love to cook. I hate to chop vegetables. (Not so much that I'm willing to buy pre-chopped vegetables, though.) Press-ganging my long-suffering roommate into chopping them for me not a long-term effective strategy. Looking for suggestions of tools, brain readjustments, or ways to develop leet knife skillz (tm) to make cutting up veggies faster, less boring, or ideally both!
