Let's talk about KALE baby! Yes that elephant in the room, that so many of you "JUST CAN'T" or maybe you totally can (and we would probably be friends!). Today, I'm taking it upon myself to claim to all those haters out there, that it's possible to make kale taste pretty freakin' finger lickin' good!
Also, it's SO easy that it's hands down become one of the quickest veggie sides to add to my meals.
Here are some tips on how to prepare it to make it BOOMMBB!
#1. Lacinato kale is by far my favorite, it's just taste the best, trust me! But also, Trader Joes sells pre-cut kale and that takes away step #2 of cutting it into small pieces, so I go this route often!
#2. Cut it into small pieces, cover it with olive oil, salt & pep, and lemon juice.
#3. MASSAGE it (literally with your fingers) to begin breaking it down which makes it easier to digest!
#4. Bake for 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees F or saute on medium heat for 5-10 minutes(or until it begins to wilt)
#5. Toss with almond slivers or goat cheese (if you do dairy)... I also like to add cayenne pepper to give it a kick!
WHAM, BAMB, Thank you ma'am'! Enjoy your kale friends.... with wine (because BALANCE).
