Top Review by Inman Ann

I first made this recipe back in the 90's and I made it again last week for Thanksgiving after finding the recipe here online (I lost the cookbook). It is still a big hit, and I never tire of hearing "please pass the kale," "mmm, that's really good kale," "can I have some more kale, please?" at the kitchen table. Definitely an easy preparation and an enjoyable intro to kale if you're a first-timer.

  4. Add kale, tossing until combined.
  5. Cover and cook on low heat just until kale is tender.
