Braised Kale with garlic and ginger (Serves 2 to 4)​

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or virgin coconut oil
  • 4 to 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 to 3 bunches kale, rinsed and chopped
  • ¼ to ½ cup water

Optional Garnishes

  • Brown rice vinegar
  • Ume plum vinegar
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Tamari
  • Sea salt

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and sauté about 15 to 30 seconds. Quickly add the chopped greens and water and continue to stir.
