Our Kale

It's Cam's kale, really.  He really knows what he's doing with his leafy greens.  I figured since just about everything on here I suggest to be eaten with kale that I should post a nice way to make it.

Enjoy with everything: soup, stews, beans, rice or on it's own. 

Serves 2-4.

Cam's Kale

1 bunch kale, stems discarded, leaves chopped

1/4 cup water

1 teapoon olive oil

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

pinch red chile flakes

salt, to taste

lemon juice, to taste

Steam kale leaves in water in covered pan until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain water.  Return kale/pan to the stove over medium heat.  Push kale to one side of pan.  On empty side, cook garlic and chile flakes in olive oil about 1 minute.  (Don't brown garlic, just get that raw edge off.)  Stir together with kale.  Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
