|Plain and simple....Kale!|
I've been adding this dark green leafy and very healthy vegetable to our plates. No one is complaining about this new addition to our meals.
There really is no recipe...just follow the simple steps below.
2)To remove stem from Kale, hold end of stem in one hand and pull down along stem with other hand. Leaves will pull away nicely from the bigger centre stem. Discard large stem.
2)Add several inches of water and 1 slice of lemon to a low pot that has a lid. (if doing a large amount of Kale add an extra slice of lemon) Place cleaned and stemmed Kale into pot. Place lid onto pot.
3)Place pot with Kale over high heat and allow to come to a full boil.
4)Turn burner to low and allow Kale to steam. Lift lid every couple of minutes to turn leaves, making sure that all the Kale leaves are all softening. Do this until Kale is bright green and soft....but not limp. It only takes 5-8 minutes depending on how much is in your pot. It's better to serve it a bit firm rather than limp and soggy.
5)Drain well, discard lemon and serve.
An extra squeeze of lemon and a dash of lemon pepper really adds a nice finishing touch.
