Sauteed spicy kale
2010, the year I met, and fell in love with, kale. I really had no idea I would love it as much as I do! I love it in my green juices, I love it baked, blended and sauteed. Here we have a spicy kale saute. I added a little serrano chile for a hint of heat.
One bunch of kale, cleaned, deribbed and sliced thin
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 serrano chile, deseeded (or partially deseeded as the taste buds may be)
the juice of one lemon
Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion and the serrano, cook until softened and translucent, add the garlic and continue to saute for a minute. Add the kale to the pan, wet, and stir well, season with sea salt and cover with a lid. Remove lid and stir after a few minutes, squeeze the lemon juice into the pan and mix well. Serve hot.
