Tasty Tuesday: Garlicky Kale

Winter Garden Kale

This recipe is inspired by my winter garden kale that is ready to harvest!  If you like garlic and are looking for an easy, tasty way to increase your intake of greens, I think you will enjoy this recipe. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare kale (adapted from a recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance).

5 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
olive oil
1 bunch of kale, rinsed, stems removed, and chopped
salt and pepper to taste
lemon wedges
hemp seed

Saute garlic in olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add kale and a few drops of water. Cook for approximately 5 minutes stiring frequently to completely coat kale with the garlic and olive oil. Remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with hemp seed and serve with a lemon wedge. You can serve this as a side dish or over a serving of quinoa for a heartier dish.  Enjoy!

Garlicky Kale served with a Tahini dressing (recipe coming soon!)

What’s your favorite way to serve kale? Would love to hear from you!
