An abundance of kale had me experimenting on ways to use this delicious, nutritious leafy green. I have yet to have any leftovers, no matter how much I make! If sodium is an issue you might want to substitute low-sodium soy sauce and vegetable base.

  • Stir water and vegetable base together in a small bowl until dissolved; pour over kale. Cook mixture until liquid is reduced, 1 to 2 minutes. Mix soy sauce and black pepper into kale.

Cook's Note:

This is a tasty side dish. I serve it with tofu and rice and some sauteed baby bella mushrooms for a wonderful vegetarian meal. I want to try adding some onions and mushrooms to it as well...or sliced red peppers...there is a lot that can be done! Enjoy.

You can tear kale into smaller pieces or leave whole as I do. Depending on the kind of kale you have, you may want to remove any thick stalks first.

I love kale and thought this looked like a very simple recipe to prepare for a weeknight side dish. It was very easy to get together and used simple ingredients which I liked. I did let mine cook a little longer because we like ours a little more wilted. I was not as fond of the soy sauce as balsamic vinegar that I typically drizzle on my kale but it was overall a very tasty dish. Read More

I love kale and am always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is simple and packed with flavor. I made it exactly as written and found it to be seasoned perfectly. I will definitely be experimenting with different additions and seasonings. Read More

Tasty way to get your greens! I cooked it in the same pan as some sausage had been cooked so it added a bit of that flavor. Read More

Tasty way to eat your kale! I sauteed onion with the garlic which added additional taste. I served with grilled chicken and brown rice made with vegetable boullion instead of plain water. Delicious! Read More
