This was so delicious that I actually had a dream about it last night... LOL! I made the Asian version and the only change I made was to replace the salt with a little bit of soy sauce. I liked how the kale still had a little "crunch" to it after such a short cooking time. I can't wait to try the Italian style. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!
Fast and fab! I made the Asian version and added a splash of tamari. Was easy and excellent.
All I had done with Kale was Beans & Greens, and I wanted to find another way of preparing this healthy, inexpensive green. This recipe is not only tasty but it gives lots of room for creativity. I may never use a recipe for kale again - but will prepare it frequently and use my imagination. I made the italian saute and the kale was lovely with diced red bell pepper and red onions and pine nuts. Beautiful and delicious.
This tastes healthy. I didn't have the red bell so I skipped it. I also steamed the kale first, then dumped it in when it was soft. Added a dash of red wine vinegar at the end. It was a pleasant addition to a meal, but not something I would get all giddy about, just eating it for the health properties and trying to make it palatable and this recipe DID make it palatable. Epicurious has a great raw salad recipe too. Eat your greens!
To be fair w/o pinenuts and red bells this dish was unimpressive Italian-style. I used the freshest Kale (ie. soft supple). I couldn't get a good absobtion in the pan of flavors between the garlic, onion and kale. At the table, the color on the plate was nice. The red bells I think would punch this up another notch on presentation. I'll try again with fresh herbs and pinenuts. There might be an assembly instruction missing in this recipe that would make a difference.
This was incrediby healthy, but the taste wasn't that appealing. I love garlic, but a clove was too overpowering for a head of kale. The onions weren't my favorite, but the kale was good with the olive oil. I didn't use the pine nuts, though.
