Ingredients:

  • 1-2 bunches of kale (I prefer organic, locally grown)
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • garlic
  • toasted pine nuts
Directions:

Clean kale, remove stems, and tear into bite sized pieces.

Place a vegetable steamer over a pot of boiling water, and place the kale into the steamer. Steam until the kale is tender, usually about 2-5 minutes.

Remove kale from heat, put into a large bowl, and set aside.

Heat up a dry skillet and place pine nuts into the skillet for one minute. Be careful not to burn the pine nuts.

In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, fresh garlic, kosher or sea salt (ground), and lemon juice.

Toss the olive oil mixture onto the kale, and top with pine nuts.

This is excellent served as a side dish with soup, or by itself!

I don’t use exact measurements, so feel free to experiment.

I prefer to buy organic kale, grown by my local co-op. It tastes better, and the money I spend is going back to the people who grew it.

Serves: 2-4
