Sautéed Kale

DSC_0757

Before I started food blogging, I really only had kale in my green smoothies. Now, I frequently eat it in salads. It is naturally high in Vitamins A and C and a great source of beta-carotene and lutein. So when I doing my bi-weekly shopping at Trader Joe’s, I bought a package of it. It was already cut, cleaned and ready to cook! I decided to sauté it like I do with spinach and it was delicious!

Ingredients:

  • ½ package Trader Joe’s Kale or 5 ounces of salad size pieces of kale with stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions:

  1. Using a large nonstick frying pan, heat olive and sesame oils over low-medium heat. Sesame oil can become bitter at higher temperatures.
  2. Add ½ package, 5 ounces, of kale. Sauté, stirring frequently for about 8 to 10 minutes, until kale becomes tender. Kale has hardy leaves and takes longer to cook. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve hot or cold. 4 side servings.
