Steamed Kale Recipe

Steamed Kale and Olives 

I'd like to share with you a really yummy recipe which even my kids love. It's very simple to make and extremely healthy. The most annoying part of it is to destem the kale. I use a sharp paring knife and just slice down either side of the spine of the kale. I like dinosaur kale the best. You can just leave the spine in also especially if it's a matter of eating it or not. 

Next step is to chop the kale into one inch slices and steam in a pan with about one inch of water for about 20 minutes or so. The kale needs to be tender but not bitter. 

When the kale is done steaming put it into a colander and squeeze out any excess water with a spoon.  Put it in a bowl and add about 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives, salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

That's it!  Eat and enjoy!
