  1. Tear the kale leaves into bite-size pieces from the thick stems; discard the stems.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the garlic in the hot oil until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the kale and continue cooking and stirring until the kale is bright green and wilted, about 5 minutes more.

I love Kale and I use this method often. I eat a lot of Kale, and unless its fresh from the garden (usually after the first frost), I tend to cook it for around 15 minutes to prevent it tasting...

I use this all the time but slight variations- if you steam the kale first it takesm more of the bitterness out. Also, I like to sauté until crispier, and add red pepper flakes for a little heat!

GREAT TIP for GARLIC LoVerS!! Smash garlic cloves only ( do not chop ) Add olive oil to warm pan (med low) add smashed garlic and watch closely sauté garlic until just when it starts to turn b...

I have made this for my family and everyone loves it. I like to add a pinch of sea salt and some grated Parmesan when it hits the table.

This was great, and so easy! I don't mind eating the stems (the part of the stem that contains the leaves, not the bare stalk part), so I just chop the leaves and stem without removing the leav...

Wow! First time eating kale, and I am in love! I ended up adding about a half cup of chicken broth, and covering to let the kale steam for a few minutes. I think this really let the garlic fla...
