Braised Kale Recipe-15942

Yield: Makes about 2 cups


  • Sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ pounds kale, stems removed, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup vegetable stock
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Earth Balance spread


Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sprinkle the bottom with a  pinch of salt and heat for 1 minute. Add the oil and heat for 30 seconds, being careful not to let it smoke. This will create a nonstick effect.

Add the kale and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until wilted. Add the stock, season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the Earth Balance. Drain the excess liquid. Serve immediately.
