Description

This lemon and garlic braised kale is an easy, healthy recipe that transforms kale into a flavor-packed, tender side dish! Ready in under 20 minutes, the simplicity of this sautéed kale recipe can’t be beat.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • One bunch curly kale, stems removed and leaves torn into bite size pieces (about 5 cups)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth


Instructions

  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saute pan.
  • Add the garlic and onion, cooking for 1-2 minutes until fragrant being careful not to burn.
  • Add the kale and stir to combine with the garlic and onion and coat in olive oil. Add the lemon zest, and saute the kale for a couple minutes so it wilts slightly.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, and pour in the lemon juice, white wine, and vegetable broth. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally letting the kale stew in the liquid.
  • Kale is ready once it has wilted significantly and is tender and soft. Add a drizzle of olive oil, and serve warm.
