Emerald Kale Salad

From Farm Where Life is Good

<p>This is the kale recipes to beat all. It is in the deli case at Mississippi Market (and Whole Foods, etc.) and I always &#8220;impulse&#8221; buy it when I am shopping on my way home from work. Now if one has to have a weakness such that one impulse-buys, well, this is a good one to have. Simple, quick and perfect with a few slabs of ginger-baked tofu alongside. Hmm, maybe I just talked myself into dinner again. Funny how that happen each week!</p>

Serves: 2-3

2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced (or more!)
1 Tbsp fresh ginger root, minced
1 bunch kale, leaves stripped from stems and chopped
1 Tbsp soy sauce/tamari
2 Tbsp sesame seeds

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Heat oils over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and sauté for 1 minute. Add chopped kale and sauté for 4 minutes. Sprinkle water over kale if it sticks to the pan. Add tamari and sesame seeds. Stir to incorporate well.
  2. You can also make this a raw salad. Add all ingredients to a large container with a tight lid. Shake it hard to bruise the kale (it’s a good kind of bruising) and distribute the ingredients well.
