Sautéed Kale

Kale is a healthy, colorful vegetable that is getting more popular all the time.  It is incredibly dense in nutrients. And guess what? There is a bonus if you grow your own kale, when the pretty little yellow flowers bloom….those are edible too! Check out my post about these edible flowers, Edible Flowers Grow On Kale Plants.

Weight Watcher Point Plus followers only count the oil used. For example if 1 Tbsp is used divide 3 points between the servings.  This ends up being 1 point per serving.

Sautéed Kale           1 bunch serves 3
1 or 2 large bunches of clean, dried kale cut in large pieces.
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1-2 tsp minced garlic (taste preference on amount)
salt & pepper

In a large pan heat oil. Add garlic and sauté about 15-20 seconds.  Add kale and stir and toss constantly  until kale starts to wilt a little, or to your preference of doneness.  Season with salt and pepper and serve.

It's a gorgeous bright green!

I like to add kale to my stir-fry dishes, it doesn't alter the flavor and adds an abundance of nutrients!
