Step 5: Cook with kale

Picture of Cook with kale
I cook kale all kinds of ways. Stirred into stews. Sauteed with white beans and lemon zest. Stir-fried with garlic, ginger and chiles. In soups with chicken, beans and vegetables.

My favorite way to cook kale pares it down to its essence: braised with a little water over medium high heat until tender, about 10 minutes, sprinkled with salt & pepper and red pepper flakes, drizzled with the best olive oil and vinegar in the vicinity, and eaten immediately.

If you chop kale finely, it's lovely raw in a salad as well!  Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice plus a slight splash of vinegar, toss with salt, pepper, and finish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  Yum!
