EASY SKILLET KALE WITH LEMON & GARLIC
2 large bunches kale, any variety (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Juice of 1 small lemon
Use your hands to pull the kale leaves from their stems. Coarsely chop the leaves. Rinse them, but do not dry.
Heat the oil in a large, wide, high-sided sauté pan over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, if using, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute (do not let the garlic brown).
Add the kale a few handfuls at a time, stirring after each addition so that it starts to wilt, until all of the kale is added. Stir in the salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale is just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice, and serve.
1 1/2 pounds young kale, stems and leaves coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
1/2 cup vegetable stock or water
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until soft, but not coloured. Raise heat to high, add the stock and kale and toss to combine. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
