Tonight I cooked kale for the first time! It is in season and seems to be a bit trendy at the moment.
bunch of young kale, stems removed, coarsely chopped
1 large clove garlic, chopped finely
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup vegetable stock
salt and pepper
2 tbs red wine vinegar
Heat the oil and fry the garlic till soft. Add the kale and stock and cook till tender and the stock has evaporated. Add salt and pepper to taste and then the vinegar.
I guess if you liked kale it might be OK but I've decided, along with my entire family, that it will never be on our shopping list again! Ryan ate it but only because he HATES chucking out food that is meant to be good for you...............the rest of us had no worries putting it in the bin!
The pan fried whiting, mashed potato, carrots and cauliflower were alright though!
