Greetings fellow members!! Last week when I was picking up my beautiful bounty, I noticed that a few people passed on the kale! I thought maybe it was its vibrant green leaves, or perhaps it is the rich, dense flavor that intimidated people, but either way I am determined to convert all of the kale-phobes out there with my family’s favorite kale recipe. If you have one that your kids or family loves, please share!
Sweet and Sour Kale
- 1 bunch Kale, stems removed, leaves slices into strips (I do this by folding the leaf lengthwise, slicing down stem (about 3/4 of the way up the leaf), then stack the trimmed kale and cut into strips)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 cups organic stock, vegetables or chicken ( can substitute water)
- 1/2 cup raw apple cider vinegar( i like Braggs ,available at health food stores)
- aprox 1 1/2 tbsp agave nectar
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
Now for the easy part… put all ingredients into a pot with a lid, simmer over med heat, stirring occasionally, until leaves are deep green, and easily chewed, about 15 min… add more liquid if needed. If you like your greens to be more al dente, then this will only take about 10 minutes. I have found that my children prefer them to be on the softer side, but there are no rules! If you have any left over, which hopefully you won’t, but if you do, refrigerate them and they are delicious cold!
