Easy Sauteed Kale

My client's corporate garden

I am a freelance writer by trade. I keep office hours with one of my clients, and they have the coolest campus.

There’s a garden!

In the summer, it’s bursting with tomatoes, squash, melons and just about anything else you can imagine. In the winter, greens are about all that will grow. This year, they planted kale and I’ve been picking a ton.

Picked and transported home

Kale is crazy nutritious AND crazy expensive. Bunches at the grocery average about $3.00 and they are tiny. That’s why I love that I can pick it for f-r-e-e at work.

This week, I took a salad in to work and used the container as my takeaway.

So what’s a girl to do with all this green leafy awesomeness?

Sautee and savor, obviously.

On the table

Easy Sauteed Kale.  

1/2 Tablespoon butter

1 Cup onion, chopped

1/2 Tablespoon minced garlic

5 Cups Kale, packed, then roughly chopped

1 Teaspoon smoked paprika

3 Tablespoons Mama Pea’s Tahini Lime Sauce.

*Heat the butter in a large sautee pan over medium high heat.

*Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds more.

*Add the kale and cook until wilted.

*Now stir in the smoked paprika and the Tahini Lime sauce. Stir to coat.

*Tahini lime sauce is in Mama Peas cookbook, which you should totally buy it. It’s amazing.If you don’t have the book yet, the major players in this sauces are tahini–lime juice–soy sauce.
