I love kale. I never ate this growing up but recently I heard through Dr. Mercola’s website, that Kale is one of the most nutritious plants on the earth and I needed to “add more leafy greens” to my diet.
I have used it in soups many times. I thought it would taste good sauteed in bacon drippings. Here is my recipe. I have a surprise note at the end of this recipe.
1 bunch of kale (stems removed, chopped into bite size pieces)
1 garlic clove (chopped)
3 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled)
1/4 cup dried fruit, chopped (I used cherry’s for their tartness)
optional: left over steak, cut into small pieces
In cast iron skillet, cook bacon and cut into pieces. Add chopped garlic, kale, dried cherries. I added a bit of water to steam/cook the kale until wilted.
This is quite delicious served as is. I usually never have any left over to see if this would taste good as a ‘cold salad’ but my son had leftover’s in the refer. I tossed this mixture with cooked sprouted brown rice (also cold left overs), added a touch of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And I happy to report, YES! this is good hot or cold. I think next time I will add chopped nuts, perhaps walnuts or almonds.
All ingredients are best if properly prepared, soaked, sprouted, and grass fed.
Veggies are best when organic. Yum! Enjoy.:)
