"A great way to use up some of the extra kale you might have in your garden! You can use other similar greens in this recipe - spinach, mustard greens, and arugula will all work. A mixture of greens is also quite good. Serve as a salad, as a side dish, or as a main dish with rice." — FISHLOVE

kale - washed, dried, and shredded
Like this recipe a lot, but made a few changes to how it was prepared - fried up the garlic and onion in the oil first, then added the (curly) kale, turned the heat right up, then added some water (a few splashes) which then turned to steam and cooked the kale through. After all the liquid was absorbed, added the breadcrumbs and some salt and served up with some parmesan shavings for extra flavour. Disappeared really fast so must've done something right ;) Thanks for the original receipe - great way to do kale!
Agree with some of the other reviews. Great basic idea. Needs modifications.
Wow! I never liked kale before I tried this recipe... Followed the advice of others and cooked the onion and garlic first, added the kale with a splash of water and covered it for a minute or so. Threw in the breadcrumbs at the end and tossed it all together with a bit of sea salt and a splash of lemon juice. I had a bit left over, which I ate cold, straight out of the fridge the next day. Still yummy!
1) Don't be alarmed by the amount/bulk of fresh kale called for. It reduces so much that you really do need at least 1/2 lb. to get one adult serving. 2) Use a LARGE saute pan or skillet, as the kale needs a lot of surface area to stir fry. If you prepare it in a Dutch oven or a small pan that forces you to pile the kale up, you will not get rid of the water and the kale will saute instead of stir frying. 3) Wilt the kale for no more than 5 minutes. 4) Most Important: Use fewer bread crumbs, and remove the bread-crumb coated onions before adding the kale. Once the kale has stir-fried, put it in a serving dish and add the onions on top. It is a nicer presentation, because loose bread crumbs spread over the kale and make it appear less appetizing. I've never been able to keep the bread crumbs on the onions if I keep them in the pan while I fry the kale. 5) Try this with the Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato.
I made this as the recipe called for and the kale was too chewy and so I made a simple modification and its awesome. I removed the thick rib in the middle of the kale and chopped it up. Then boiled it x 10 min. Meanwhile cook onion and garlic in frying pan and added some salt,pepper and small amt of hot pepper flakes. Then put the boiled drained kale in the olive oil/onion mixture with salt and pepper and it was really good. Even people who thought they did not like kale enjoyed it this way.
Great way to quickly and easily cook any type of green - I would suggest that when you need to add moisture you add veg or chicken broth in lieu of water.
This is a good recipe for Kale. I added some butter & parmesean cheese. Not quite as healthy, but a good way to get the rest of my family to eat their veggies:)
Yummy! This was very easy and very tasty. I will make this again. I found that I needed to add water while it was cooking but other than that it was great.
