"Kale is supposed to have cancer-fighting properties. I love it, but my husband hates it. Cooking it this way is the only way he'll eat it."

  1. Soak kale leaves in a large bowl of water until dirt and sand begin to fall to the bottom, about 2 minutes. Lift kale from the bowl without drying the leaves and immediately remove and discard stems. Chop the kale leaves into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until sizzling, about 1 minute. Add kale to the skillet and place a cover over the top.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally with tongs, until kale is bright green and slightly tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

So easy and simple. Making this recipe put me in the 'love kale' category. Will make again. I doubled the garlic in this one.

After reading some reviews, I doubled the garlic and cooked the kale for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. When done I sprinkled salt on it. My wife loved it, and I liked it a lot. That mean...
