    Cookgirl's Note:

    We have a bumper crop of organic kale (Brassica Oleracea 'Winter Red') in the garden now! Here's an easy recipe for steamed kale. Feel free to add your favorite spices or herbs, extra virgin olive oil, toasted sesame oil, sundried toms, squeeze of lemon juice, etc. that will complement your menu. Our favorite way to serve greens like this is simple: drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, pinch of salt, cracked black pepper, and another drizzle of lemon juice. From Capay Organic/FarmFreshtoYou. This cooking method works well using other greens, too: mustard, Swiss chard, beet greens, collards...

    1. 1
      *Note: some cooks prefer to leave kale ribs and stalks intact-your choice. Depending on the variety of kale, if the stalks and ribs are thick, I remove them. A salad spinner is handy for washing the kale.
    2. 2
      Shred kale finely and place in a steamer basket fitted in a pot. Don't forget to add a couple inches of water to the pot!
    3. 3
      Throw in the garlic.
    4. 4
      Bring water to the boil. Cover pan, reduce heat to low and steam kale for approximately 10 minutes, or until tender.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat to serving dish. Toss with a little bit of oil of choice, if desired.
    6. 6
      Season with salt and cracked black pepper to taste.

      Thanks so much for posting- I didn't know how to cook the Kale which I bought, and this recipe did the trick. The Kale came out delicious.
