From our kitchen to yours

Anneliese Abney

This recipe is maybe my top favorite ever. And it’s super, super easy! If you like kale, or even if you think you don’t, this is going to be – I hope – a wonderful addition to your cooking repertoire. Kale is chock-full of lots of vitamins and nutrients, including beta carotene and vitamins K and C as well as calcium, and it’s brimming with antioxidants. And because kale is such a hardy crop, we can look forward to seeing it around the farmer’s market for a good chunk of the fall.Ingredients:
1 bunch kale
1 large clove garlic
Olive oil
Salt or tamari
Dash of balsamic vinegar
Sesame seeds

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
Mince the garlic and coarsely chop the kale.
Add the garlic to the heated oil, sautéing it until aromatic, then add the kale to the pan.
Once the kale turns bright green, add the salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar and cover the pan, steaming the greens for about three to five minutes.
Uncover and add the sesame seeds, sautéing for the final minute.

And it’s done! I recommend eating it all at once.

Serves 3-4. Unless you’re like my roommate and I – then it’s barely enough for 2.

Guten Appetit!
