This is simplicity at its very best. Because kale and I… well… let’s say I don’t really enjoy it so much. There is a level of tolerance to leafy greens I have due to a very bad experience that still leaves me shuddering in fear.
So… I do what every grandmother says, cook the greens – I chop up the kale – and massage them with olive oil (at least kale gets its own urban clap masseuse!). Sprinkle with some salt and pepper, and leave for at least 15 minutes – this softens the tough leaves, and I also use up all the stems for added crunch – which gets marinated as well.
Paired with garlic pretty much fried in butter, tossed with rice – this is the ultimate rice dish. Top with a fried egg for protein or grilled tofu/paneer – it all works well.
Here’s to good health!
