Sauteed Ginger Garlic Kale

Sautéed Ginger Garlic Kale
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes or until kale is tender

Serves 2

1 bunch kale, rinsed well and coarsely chopped
1 large clove garlic, mashed
½ tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1-2 tsp sesame oil
Sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds

1. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, boil the kale in ½ cup or so of water until tender. You might have to add more water during the cooking.

2. Once the kale is tender, drain and set aside.

3. Heat the sesame oil, garlic & ginger in a small skillet over medium heat. Sautee for just a minute or until you get the fragrance of the garlic & ginger. Add the kale and quickly stir fry (should only take a minute or two). Taste for seasoning – you might want to add a little soy sauce.

4. Place in a serving dish and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Great as a side for Hoisin Garlic Flank Steak & steamed rice.
