Glorious green kale! Simply sauteed with just olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Spritzed with lemon before serving. One tip: don’t cook the hell out of it since we want to preserve some of those wonderful nutrients kale has to offer. Just a few minutes until it lightly wilted is all it needs!
Serves 4 as a side
1 bunch of curly kale, large rib removed, torn into pieces
3 large cloves of garlic, thinly sliced or chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Juice of about half a lemon
Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the a large skillet or sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Add garlic and saute about 3 minutes.
Add kale and 2-3 tablespoons of water, cover and allow to steam just 2 minutes. Remove lid and toss kale around to cook evenly. If needed, return lid and let steam additional minute.
Season with salt and pepper, transfer to a dish and toss with lemon juice and also a drizzle of olive oil if desired.
