Prep time: 
  • 5 minutes

Prep notes: 

Cooking time: 
  • 15 minutes

4 people

  • 2 cups water
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 bunch of kale

  • Put water, salt and a steamer basket in a medium-size pot and heat on high.
  • Wash kale.
  • Remove leaves from stems and cut or tear leaves in any size you like. Chop the stems into ½-inch pieces, discarding the bottom as it tends to be tough.
  • When the water is boiling, add the stems to the pot, cover and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the leaves, cover, lower the heat and steam for another 2-4 minutes. Leaves should be wilted, yet bright green.
  • Carefully remove the steamer basket and transfer kale to a serving dish.

  • Enjoy the kale plain, or add a little tamari or lemon juice.
  • Try this same technique with collard greens, bok choy and mustard greens.
