Seasoned Kale with Nuts

flexcook's picture
I think kale is a misunderstood vegetable. It is very easy to cook, and the health benefits are indisputable. Kale’s slightly bitter taste mellows when sautéed. In this dish it is seasoned with cumin, garlic, and peppers, and the nuts impart a sweet taste.
  Light olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Kale 1 Bunch (100 gm), strip leaves off stalks, wash, and chop
  Extra light olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Mustard seeds 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cumin seeds 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic cloves 5 Clove (25 gm), peeled and sliced
  Dried red chili 4 , split in half
  Macadamia nuts/Honey-roasted cashews 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs) (Any Nut Of Choice)
  Salt To Taste

1.In a large skillet or nonstick sauté pan, heat 2 tbsp oil. Add kale; cover and sauté on a low flame for 6 minutes. Stir kale and increase heat to medium-low (do not cover). Cook till tender, stirring occasionally (about 6-8 minutes).
2.In the meantime, in a small sauté pan or saucepan, add 1 tbsp oil and mustard seeds; cover and heat over medium-low flame. When the mustard seeds stop sputtering and popping, remove cover and add cumin seeds, garlic, red chili peppers, and nuts, and fry until garlic turns a light golden brown. (Be careful to keep your face a safe distance, as the oil can spatter when adding ingredients.).
3. When the kale is done, add the seasoning and toss. Salt to taste. Serve with rice.
