Sauteed Kale with Parmesan

Sauteed Kale 1

Sautéed kale is a quick and easy side dish that only takes about 10 minutes to make and is great with just about everything. On days that I don’t want to eat meat, I prepare sautéed kale with Parmesan to eat as my main dish without the feeling that I’m missing out on a savory meal.  When it comes to kale the possibilities are truly endless.

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3/4 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1 small Onion
  • 1 bag Kale
  • 2 Tbsp. Water
  • 1 Chicken Bullion Cube
  • Parmesan (shaved or shredded)

Here’s what I did:

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet (I use a pot because I double the recipe) over medium heat.

Wash Kale and drain. (The bag is already washed but I wash it again)

Add the kale to the skillet or pot along with 2 tablespoons of water and bouillon cube. Cook, stirring often until it reaches your desired consistency.  (I like mine with a slight crunch)
