Is it cliché as a vegan to be a kale lover?… If so… guilty as charged! ♥
Kale is great (so nutrient dense), and to be honest… I don’t think that I ever ate it before becoming vegan. Isn’t it funny how a whole world of food opens up to you when you change your diet?!? I like to add kale to soups (such as split pea… it gets blended and no one knows it’s there), and I use it in falafel instead of parsley. It’s also a great side dish on its own!
Here is an easy and delicious recipe to get kale into your diet. It’s a great way to use up leftover kale before it starts to go bad (which is what I was doing!).
First… de-stem the kale by ripping the leaves off of the stem. (You can reserve the stems for juicing). Slice the leaves into strips or bite sized pieces.
|This is about a half of a bunch of kale, but feel free to use more!… just add more garlic and oil.|
|This is two cloves of garlic!… I love the way garlic flavors green veggies!|
Serve!! This pairs well with pasta! Isn’t it amazing how much it cooks down… and how easy that was?
|It really is a simple beautiful dish!|
