Sauteéd Kale and Apple ~ The New Side…

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

  • kale
  • 1 large shallot
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • apple
  • parmesan cheese (fresh)
  • olive oil
  • butter

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.)

Bon appétit!
