Kale is the new spinach and is amazing when it is paired with apple. :)
They sell bags of kale that are pre-trimmed and washed at your local Trader Joes for only a couple of dollars. This green is also loaded with vitamin K, D, and C. It is filled with anti-oxidants and has been known to reduce the risks of cancer. Just one more reason kale should be served at your next meal!
Kale and Apple Side Dish
- 1 large shallot
- 2-3 cloves of garlic
- parmesan cheese (fresh)
- olive oil
In a pan add a combination of olive oil and butter.
While that’s melting, chop your apple, shallot, and garlic.
Add this trio to the hot pan and gently sauté until fragrant (3-4 minutes.)
Next add in the kale. Drizzle with a little bit more olive oil over top and lightly season with salt. Cover with a lid or piece of aluminum foil.
Cover for about 12-15 minutes until it is nicely cooked down and the stems are soft. Shave some fresh parmesan over top using a peeler.
You can also serve this dish on flat bread with melted brie. (See recipe.)
