Ginger Sesame Kale

One of my favorite side dishes and the perfect accompaniment to any Asian main course. Not to mention a great way to learn to like kale.


Serves 4 as a side dish

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1 bunch Tuscan kale (aka dinosaur kale), washed
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon chili sesame oil, or
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil with ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Sesame seeds for garnish 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut or pull out the thick middle stem of each kale leaf, then cut cross-wise into one inch strips
  2. Heat a large pan or wok to medium high, add neutral oil and just when it starts to smoke – add kale
  3. Cook kale, stirring a lot until wilted about 2 minutes, then add ginger & garlic – continue stirring another couple minutes
  4. Add soy, sesame oil and red pepper flakes if using and cook, stirring one more minute
