Ingredients:2 Tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp (or more) sliced or chopped dried tomatoes, rehydrated
1 bunch of cleaned kale, stems removed
salt and pepper
~1/2 c stock
balsamic vinegar
goat cheese, optional
Preparation:Heat olive oil in a cast iron pan. Add garlic and saute until translucent (NOT BROWN). Add dried tomatoes, rehydrated with a bit of warm water, plus 1 bunch of cleaned kale, chopped or slivered. (Remove stems!) Toss to coat with oil; add salt and pepper. Cook until wilted, then add ~1/2 c chicken or other stock. Bring to boil, then simmer covered until kale is tender, ~8 min. Uncover, cook off liquid at high heat, and then season with balsamic vinegar. Top with goat cheese if desired. (I skip that.)
Notes:GOOD kale can be cooked much less, but make sure you've washed and cleaned
well, and that you've removed the stems.
