I'm a big fan of KALE - It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin K, Calcium, high Potassium, Copper, and Manganese. It is the number one "super food" that you and I can use in lots of dishes like soup, breakfast, side dish, it can also be served with cauliflower mash along with grilled meat or seafood. I try to blend mine with my smoothie, you can also give raw kale salad a try.
Luckily I have such cool neighbors that grow lots of kale in their gardens, and they let me use them as much as I want. The kind of feeling I have makes me feel lucky as much as I appreciate the organic garden. And like you know that my whole30 program requires me to cook, eat and drink organic. With this organic gardens from next door, my bill is lighter than I have to pay, lol.
Honestly, I have been eating kale in every dish I prepare on Whole30 for 14 days straight, and that is how much I am enjoying Kale.
This recipe is simple and quick to make. First, I blanched my green kale and slice it thinly before I sautéed them- this takes a lot of time though. I then mince garlic, quick sautéed them with extra-virgin olive oil + salt + pepper - this is such a great deal recipe that you need to keep in your recipe book.
I keep thing interesting by switching things around, serving this with cauliflower mash along with grilled meat or some favorite seafood, served with brown ground beef + poached egg, then served with grilled meat over cauliflower rice and sunny side egg, and so much more.
