Ingredients

  • 1 bunch fresh kale
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • a few drops toasted sesame oil (optional)

Instructions

  1. Wash the kale by rinsing or submerging in a bowl of water and swishing it around. Pull the leafy parts from the stems. Discard the stems. Tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat for a minute.
  3. Add the garlic and cook only about 15-20 seconds until it starts to smell fragrant. Add the sesame seeds and half the kale.
  4. Sprinkle with half the salt and toss around a few minutes until kale starts to wilt. Add in remaining kale and continue to cook until it’s softened and reduced in volume by half. It should still be bright green.
  5. Remove from heat and sprinkle with sesame oil. Serve hot or at room temperature.
