Sauteed Kale

I have been loving kale lately and have seen it at the farmers market the last few weeks.   This Sautéed Kale is super easy and delicious.  This makes a great side dish to any meal.   I used a young kale, you may notice the leaves are smaller.   You can use any kale that you have.  This took me less than 20 minutes to put together.   I have been so busy this month so something quick is always appreciated.  Enjoy!

Sautéed Kale

1 large bunch of kale
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 onion, diced
¾ cup chicken stock
salt and pepper


Chop stems and leaves of kale.

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.

Add garlic and onions, cook until softened.  

Over high heat, add stock and kale to saucepan with garlic and onions.  Stir to combine.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Remove cover and cook for additional 10-15 minutes until all the liquid has evaporated.   Stir occasionally.

Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 2 to 4.
