What is great about this recipe is that you can pack the kale into a jar, even still hot, and it will be fresh for many hours. Perfect to take out for a trip or work lunch 🙂 Kale is pretty damn special in this sense, as regular types of salads would suffocate in a jar and splash with much regrets.

Ingredients: Steps:
I find this cleaning technique the best, the quickest and easiest:Cleaning:

Fill clean sink or a huge pot with cold water and put kale in it, let it soak for some time (while you take shower or read an article). If needed put 2 plates on top so that it dives into water – after that all dirt should be drifting away. Shake it well in the water before cutting.

Cutting:

Now take out each leaf from the water, rinse it along the stick if still dirty. Cut with a knife alongside each stick on both sides, to quickly peel the curly leaves. Cut them however you like into smaller pieces. Throw each batch into a big pot until done.

  • 5 dried tomatoes
  • 5 spoons of olive oil
  • Himalayan or sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • (teaspoon of your favorite spices)
  • half cup of cold water
  • freshly pressed lemon juice
Cooking:Turn on highest heat under the kale, add water, olive oil, top it with salt, pepper, herbs, a bit of juiced lemon and dried tomatoes. Cover for a minute. Open cover and mix all well, moving bottom kale to the top for 2-5 minutes. If necessary add water, lower the heat or cover for a moment: the kale is ready when it turns from cold green color to warm green color and tenders. It will still be a bit crunchy – that’s how it is.

Take the pot off the heat, top kale with Parmesan and serve… on its own or according to your imagination 🙂 Have fun with it!

If kale burned on bottom of the pot: open the pot and without mixing anything inside move the top kale to another pot and finish your cooking.
