Sauteed kale is super healthy, quick cooking and full of flavor. I know some people turn their nose up to kale, that’s ok. Some of us like it and will continue to cook/eat it. We make kale chips all the time. So one day my daughter asked to try it sauteed, I obliged. She has always been an adventurous eater and loves to try new things. So don’t be shocked that my 13 year old kid likes and requests such a healthy vegetable.
Clean and remove the stalks from the kale. Give it a rough chop.
Heat the oil in a pan, add garlic.
Add the kale and vegetable stock. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking until the liquid has evaporated.
That’s it! So easy, right? This stuff is so good. It’s a really pretty green color too! Even if you’re not a kale fan you have to try this recipe at least once.
