Kale Celery Saute

Did you ever have a dish of food that just made you feel better while eating it? This is one of them. Prepared properly, this slightly crisp, barely cooked dish provides energy directly. Honest - I sat at the table and ate this with a goofy grin on my face the whole time! And, had to restrain myself from eating the entire dish in one sitting. Highly recommended!

Kale Celery Saute

3/4 lb kale (6 c), chopped
2 tsp olive oil
2 stalks celery, cut in half lengthwise, and thinly sliced
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 hot red cherry pepper, seeded and diced, or, 1/4 c diced red bell pepper

Wash kale and strip leaves from stalks. Discard stalks. Chop leaves.

Bring 2 c water to a boil in a skillet. Add kale. Cover and cook over high heat for 5 minutes. Remove and drain.

Rinse out and dry skillet. Add olive oil and heat. Add celery and saute 3-4 minutes.

Stir in garlic and red pepper. Cover and cook 2 minutes.

Stir in kale and heat through. 

Season with salt and serve.

Farm box ingredients used: kale, hot pepper
