kale and root vegetable sauce

It turns out root vegetables make a great sauce for kale.

a root veggie or two (e.g., turnip, rutabaga, celeriac, cauliflower is good too)
some onion (half a medium one say)
some garlic (1-2 cloves, optional)
1 Tbsp Dr. Fuhrman black fig or other flavored vinegar or lemon juice
some veggiezest or unsalted seasoning (optional)
a bunch of kale, ripped off stems and steamed
1 oz nuts and/or seeds (e.g., sesame seeds, raw cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds; optional)
a small zucchini (optional)
1-2 figs (optional) 

steam the kale separately.  boil every thing else (except the vinegar and nuts/seeds) together in a pan with small amount of water.  then throw it in the blender with the vinegar to make a sauce.  It's good.  I listed a bunch of optional things I've tried.   Right now my favorite mix is with the root vegetables, onion, garlic, sesame seeds and vinegar.  I really like this.
