Delicious Kale Recipe

Hey all! I found this great new recipe that I want to share with you! Try it out and let me know what you think!!

Here’s the recipe for Sauteed Kale!

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1-1 1/2 pounds kale, ribs removed, coarsely chopped (see Tip)

1/2 cup water

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

2-3 teaspoons sherry vinegar, or red-wine vinegar (we’ve even used balsamic to mix it up!)

1/4 teaspoon salt


Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add kale and cook, tossing with two large spoons, until bright green, about 1 minute. Add water, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Push kale to one side, add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the empty side and cook garlic and crushed red pepper in it until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Stir in vinegar to taste and salt.

Remember, guys, that a 1- to 1 1/2-pound bunch of kale yields 16 to 24 cups of chopped leaves, and when preparing kale for these recipes, remove the tough ribs, chop or tear the kale as directed, then wash it—allowing some water to cling to the leaves. The moisture helps steam the kale during the first stages of cooking.
