Or collard greens. Or chard. Or any of those somewhat bitter leafy greens that you’re not quite sure what to do with.
You know they’re good for you, you just don’t really want to eat them. I get it.
So here’s a super easy way to make them taste amazing. So you’ll actually eat them.
Here’s what you need (besides the kale):
A little garlic doesn’t hurt either.
We all know those dark green leafy veggies are amazing for us. But we’re still probably not eating them as much as we should.
Veggies like kale and collards contain numerous antioxidants and may protect against cancer. Kale is high in vitamins A, C and K, and supports the body’s natural detox process. I’ve noticed that consuming leafy greens like kale really helps my skin.
Avocado oil has been proven to help your body absorb the nutrients in your greens., and contains vitamins A, D and E, along with magnesium and antioxidants. It also adds a rich, buttery flavor. I use the avocado oil from Primal Kitchen Foods…love it!
Bone broth is pretty amazing stuff. It contains a wide array of minerals and is a great source of collagen for firm skin and healthy nails and hair. It also supports joint health and digestion.
I like the flavor of chicken bone broth with greens. Sometimes I make my own, but I’m also a huge fan of Kettle & Fire Bone Broth. Most packaged broths are loaded with additives, but not Kettle & Fire. It is made from pastured bones and all organic ingredients. Scroll to the bottom for a discount code 😀
A little bit of fresh garlic adds flavor and valuable sulphur compounds.
So here’s what I’ve been doing…you do not need to measure anything here. Just start cooking!
You’ll need a large skillet or even a Dutch oven, and a spatula or large spoon.
Gather your ingredients...avocado oil, high quality broth, a clove or two of fresh garlic, and of course your kale (or other dark leafy greens). I usually buy the bags that are pre-washed and cut.
Pour some oil into the skillet…roughly a few tablespoons…please don’t bother measuring! Heat the skillet on medium for a minute or two and add some diced garlic if you like. Stir for about a minute or until it becomes fragrant, and then add the greens. Add as many as you can fit in the pan. They shrink.
Cook your kale, stirring from time to time so it’s coated with the oil. When it begins to shrink a little bit, add a nice splash of broth. Don’t dirty up those measuring cups! Eyeball one quarter to one half cup of broth. Cover the pan and lower heat. Stir every few minutes.
Cooking time will vary depending on how the kale was cut and how you like it done. I don’t like mushy greens, so mine is usually done in a little over five minutes.
Kale cooked this way is an awesome side to just about any protein. It pairs especially well with chicken. With the protein from the bone broth it easily stands on it’s own as a light lunch.
Just writing this post is making me hungry for more, but sadly I’m sitting at O’Hare waiting for a connection…no kale here 😟
So, can eating no fail kale help you feel happy, healthy and hot? Hell yeah!
You’ll be happy eating something so delicious. Kale, garlic, bone broth and avocado oil are very healthy ingredients. Food like this supports firm, glowing skin and can help you maintain a healthy weight…very hot!
