Sauteed Kale


I LOVE the idea of getting as much healthy food into my body as possible. So, sauteing spinach and kale or drinking my veggies in a smoothie are all appealing to this health nut! Plus, this simple recipe for sauteed kale is quite yummy! And, who likes raw kale anyway? {I do love kale salads but if anyone tells you they like kale straight up, they are probably lying or, in my opinion, their taste buds have got some serious issues. ;)} If you tell me it’s an acquired taste, I’m ready to start working on acquiring it but, if not, I’m definitely not ready to go through the pain of consuming that bitterness regularly. Alright, onto the sauteed greatness!

Ingredients:

(Everything minus the chili powder which was an afterthought 😉 ).

–3 Tbsp olive oil

–2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

–1/2 cup water

–2 cloves garlic, minced

–1 Tbsp chili powder

–salt and pepper to taste

Directions: In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic once oil is hot. After about a minute, add the kale. When kale turns bright green, after about a minute, add red wine vinegar and water and stir. When the kale shrinks down and is almost tender, add chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir until kale is ready, remove from heat and enjoy!

    This recipe inspired me to make a kale pasta with tarragon, mushrooms and scotch bonnet peppers. Way to go Margaret! 🙂
