Kale is a “super food” packed full of vitamins, fiber, iron, and calcium – but how do you cook it? This simple recipe is an easy way to get these nutritious greens onto your menu:
1-1/2 pounds kale or collard greens
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup water or chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar (optional)
Wash the kale under running water and break off the stems.
In a large skillet with a cover, sauté the onions and garlic in the oil.
Dry the Kale and chop or tear into 1/2 inch pieces. It makes a pretty good pile.
Add greens to water or broth. Cover and simmer for 4 minutes. Remove cover, continue cooking, stirring constantly until greens have wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle cider vinegar on mixture. The greens will really shrink down while cooking.
