My new favorite way of making kale. Simple simple simple but oh so tasty. Use as a side for any vegan main. Can also be enjoyed cold the next day. I can easily go through a whole bunch of kale on my own so plan accordingly. Fricken Yum.
Sautéed Kale with Tomatoes & Garlic
1 bunch kale, washed, trimmed, and torn into bite size pieces
1 large clove garlic, smashed and minced
1 medium tomato, small dice
1 small fresh chili or jalapeno pepper or 1/4t cayenne pepper flakes
2T extra vrgin olive oil
1/4t fresh black pepper
In a large skillet heat up the olive oil over medium high heat and sauté the garlic just until golden brown. Add the salt, hot pepper, and the tomato and sauté just for a minute or so before adding the kale. With a fork or a pair of tongs, move the kale around the pan cooking the kale until wilted and tender. I like to place mine in a bowl with a plate over top so that it continues to steam slightly. Serve immediately or eat chilled.
