OLS Week #3

I relied on my garden and the spice cabinet for this vegetarian meal. I had grilled asparagus and garlic scapes and a healthy serving of fresh kale with young garlic. Here is the kale recipe:

Sesame Kale
2 cloves garlic

1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon water

1 teaspoon soy sauce

Salt and pepper

Wash the kale, leaving it a little wet. Discard the stems and tear the soft leaves into bite-sized pieces. Mince or chop the garlic (your preference). Heat the sesame oil in a large pot or skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic to the hot oil until the kitchen smells delicious. (This should take under one minute.) Add the kale and water to the garlic and oil, and cover. Let it cook for about a minute, then stir the kale and re-cover. Cook for about 2 more minutes, and when the kale is wilted, stir in the soy sauce, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of fresh pepper.

This recipe sounds great - I'm going to put it on the list to try out with my first CSA pickup of kale. Thanks!

Thanks for the recipe. I have two bunches of kale from my CSA and no ideas - I might try this one!

You CAN sprinkle two Tbsp of sesame seeds on it at the very end.
