I used this recipe for the first time I cooked kale (tonight). I'd never had it before so I wasn't sure what to expect, flavour-wise. I put this as a side dish with oven-baked chicken legs and it turned out very nicely.
Warning to any new to kale: it's rather bitter and has a similar taste/testure to spinach.
This was incredibly easy and flavourful so I will *definitely* make it again. Next time, I will make a couple changes:
1. 6 cloves of garlic, added AFTER the kale (when you add garlic first, you risk burning and wrecking the flavour; it is MUCH tastier when added in the last 1-2 mins when cooking it by sautee). Like some others, I just prefer more garlic.
2. Adding some salt or sugar to offset the bitterness. I may try steaming (as others suggested) by putting the kale in a microwave-safe dish with a little water for a few minutes (I need to buy a new steamer and I keep forgetting).
Only change I made to this recipe tonight was adding a bit more oil, because I cooked it in a large skillet instead of a saucepan for the larger surface area.
