Kale

November 15, 2012
 Looking to try something new? Well, I have just the thing....

KALE!!!

I'm the type of person that always eats the same things. You could say I like to stay in my cooking comfort zone. But, once I tried kale, it magically made it's way into my vegetable line-up. Kale is an amazing vegetable. It's packed with nutrients such as vitamin A, C and K as well as antioxidants. Plus, it's low in calories and contains healthy fiber. Kale is definitely a superfood!

Here's how I prepare Kale:

First, rinse the kale. Then, coarsely chop the stems and leaves. Set the kale aside and finely chop a clove of garlic. In a pan, combine the garlic with 1/2 cup-3/4 cup of vegetable or chicken broth. Heat the broth/garlic on high until almost to a boil. Add kale before it starts boiling and then cover for about 5 minutes. 


The kale will steam and gradually take up less space in the pan. I occasionally stir to prevent the garlic from burning on the bottom of the pan as well as rotate the kale throughout. 

If you prefer, add salt and pepper to taste and.....Ta-Da! Delicious Kale!
