Authorlisa

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins

 2 cups water
 Pinch sea salt
 1 bunch of kale

1

Put water, salt and a steamer basket in a medium-size pot and heat on high.

2

Wash kale.

3

Remove leaves from stems and cut or tear leaves in any size you like. Chop the stems into 1/2-inch pieces, discarding the bottom as it tends to be tough.

4

When the water is boiling, add the stems to the pot, cover and cook for 1 minute.

5

Add the leaves, cover, lower the heat and steam for another 2-4 minutes. Leaves should be wilted, yet bright green.

6

Carefully remove the steamer basket and transfer kale to a serving dish.

Notes: Enjoy the kale plain, or add a little tamari or lemon juice. Try this same technique with collard greens, bok choy and mustard greens.
