We had some yummy and very inexpensive kale with dinner yesterday. You can get a bag of frozen blue curl kale for 1.99 at Whole Foods. the key to cooking greens well is having a smoky flavor, an earthy flavor, a spicy flavor, a smidge of fat and a sweet flavor. Lots of people do bacon for fat and smoke but I don't eat pork so here's what I did:
Med high heat 1/2 tbs butter and 1 tbs olive oil, sautee 4 sliced garlic cloves and 1 sliced onion til they're clear, add the kale and stir then sprinkle about 1/4 cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp tumeric, 1 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp honey and about a cup of veggie broth, season to taste with salt and pepper, cook until the kale is heated through, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn't burn on the bottom and let the broth reduced. It takes about 15 mins.
