Sautéed Kale

I love kale. My boys love kale. Even my husband goes for it. Kale is a universally favorite vegetable in our family. And boy am I lucky, since it's a superfood. Given our collective kale obsession, I am always looking for more ways to cook it, and this is one of my favorites.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped into 1-inch strips
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt

Directions

In a large pan, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onion and sauté for 15 minutes, until caramelized. Add the kale and sauté for 5 minutes, uncovered. Cover with a lid and sauté for 1-2 minutes, until wilted. Remove from heat, season with the salt, and serve.

Kale Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Kale Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
