Pressure Cooker Kale Greens

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"This is a recipe for kale greens made in a pressure cooker with turkey bacon. I make this with a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. If you eat red meat, feel free to substitute the turkey bacon with the real thing. If you want less salt, cut back on the bouillon."

  1. Heat olive oil in a pressure cooker over medium heat. Stir in turkey bacon, onion, celery, and red pepper flakes; cook until turkey bacon is browned and onion is translucent, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes more. Add kale gradually; cook and stir until just wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, bouillon cubes, sugar, and pepper.
  2. Cover pressure cooker with lid and cook kale according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and release pressure through natural release method. Open the pressure cooker carefully; stir in salt and hot pepper sauce.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Increase kale amount to 1 1/2 pounds or as much as will fit into your pressure cooker for this recipe, if desired.

Very flavorful and the kale was very tender. I used regular bacon. This dish doesn't take long when you're using a pressure cooker. I will make this again.

I had to pick out some of the bacon way too much for me next time i will only use two slices i did not change anything this was absolutely the best kale dish i've ever had i had a plate for lunc...

My kids devoured these greens! At first, they thought it was collards (which they were not too excited about). These are a new side dish in our home. Thank you for the recipe!

Original dish was way too salty. Second time used reduced sodium ingredients, and much less boullion. Works well as a side dish, and can be made in a pot on the stove top.

Didnt use broth or bacon since my wife is Vegetarian but the rest of the ingredients I used and it turned out very delicious.

This is my go-to for any kind of greens and I LOVE it! I use 4 slices or real (not turkey) bacon, low-sodium broth, and only one bouillon cube, and it's perfect.
