Sauteed Kale in Garlic and Butter Sauce

Would you believe I’ve never been a big kale fan until I was given a big bag of it last week? It was delicious cooked this way and I’m sure I’ll be making it often now. Did you know that kale is packed with nutrients and is said to be one of the world’s healthiest foods? Kale is a member of the cabbage family but it does not form a head. Instead you get these large leafy greens.

The most common kind of kale is called curly kale or Scots kale. It has hard, fibrous stems which are best removed before cooking. Kale is loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, magnesium, potassium and Beta Carodene among others.

I sauteed this quickly in a little oil and then added chicken broth and cooked over medium heat until the kale got tender with the red peppers, onion and garlic. I added a teaspoon of butter off of the heat for a little additional flavor. Leftovers would make a tasty omelet or use in the stuffed mushrooms I shared the link with below.
