SOFT KALE SALAD | UNDER 10 min.

I love kale but I have a bit of a well…’hard’ time with the rigidity/thickness of its leaves sometimes. 

So you have two options to make it softer:

- Either you spend a good 10 minutes massaging it by hand with lemon, I love doing that when I have a bit of time, it gives an amazing tangy zest! 

- Or EASY / QUICKER option use a pan to bring moisture into the leaves

INGREDIENTS 

  • 500 Gr Kale (About a pound) 
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Intense Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Fresh Ginger (or powder alternatively)
  • Himalayan salt
  • Pine nut (or crushed almonds or any other type of dried nuts) 
  • Dried cranberries or raisins or other dried fruit you'd prefer

EASY COOKING METHOD

  1. In a pan, add:

        - A peppery Extra Virgin Olive Oil - I use ‘Cuvée Intense’ for this, always!!

        - Himalayan salt

        - Freshly cut ginger (make sure it is cut really small)

        - Put in the thinly sliced pieces of kale

  2. Low heat - Cover it - Leave it to sweat for about 5 minutes - Just so it breaks down some of the plant’s fibrous cells and brings back moisture into the leaves.
  3. Pour in 2 table spoons of the olive oil and mix a bit more before turning the heat off. 

SERVING

  • Transfer to serving bowl
  • Add more Intense Olive Oil, pine nuts or any other crunchy dried nuts, and add a fresh / sweeter touch with cranberries or raisins (not much though :) It is just to break the hard fibre like texture with some sweet softness.

Enjoy, it's healthy and uber delicious.
