“Kale is a superfood”. “Kale is good for you.” We have all heard these things. But what I also hear, too often, from my patients is “I don’t like kale.” I find the distaste for greens mostly stems from childhood when a person was served greens that were poorly cooked, typically overcooked. No one would like steamed, stringy, overcooked greens. This sauteed kale with shallots recipe is truly delicious, super easy and fast. Even if you don’t think you like kale, I bet you’ll enjoy this one!
Fast and Easy Sauteed Kale with Shallots
1 small bunch of organic kale, chopped in small bite-size pieces, washed and large ribs removed
1 medium organic shallot, diced
2 tsp healthy organic cooking oil such a tea seed, avocado, or coconut
Optional: 1/4 to 1/2 organic lemon, juiced
Salt and pepper to taste
This entire recipe takes about 3 minutes once you have all the ingredients chopped. You want to serve it as soon as it’s done, so time the rest of your meal accordingly.
