Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add kale and cook, tossing with two large spoons, until bright green, about 1 minute. Add water, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Push kale to one side, add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the empty side and cook garlic and crushed red pepper in it until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Stir in vinegar to taste and salt.

Footnotes

  • Recipe Tips & Notes:
  • When preparing kale for these recipes, remove the tough ribs, chop or tear the kale as directed, then wash it---allowing some water to cling to the leaves. The moisture helps steam the kale during the first stages of cooking.

Waaaaay better than I was expecting. And so easy. I used vegetable broth that was already opened and needed to be used instead of water. So good!

This recipe is great on its own, but doubly great for people who don’t know that the secret to kale is that you have to cook it for a while to get the bitterness out. Kale is so good for you but...

Very good. I had a small amount of andouille sausage (maybe 1/4 pound or less) in the fridge that needed to be used, so I cut it into very thin slices and sauteed it first before adding the kal...

This was our first time to cook and eat Kale and let me tell you, this recipe is sensational! My husband prepared the Kale while I prepared stuffed pork chops. Such a spectacular taste sensation...

Very simple but very good recipe. Thanks for sharing
