Lemon Kale with Coriander

Lemon Kale w/ CorianderA lot of people are intimidated by the idea of cooking kale. It is a stronger tasting green, to be sure, but chock-full of nutritional benefits.

It’s great in smoothies, smothered in cheese,  baked into chips, or (if you’re feeling daring) in a fruit salad. But if you want to keep things simple, here’s my recommendation:

Lemon Kale with Coriander Ingredients

  • 2 handfuls of Kale
  • 1 T. coconut oil (unrefined and organic is best)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1/2 lemon

Lemon Kale with Coriander Recipe

  • Rinse kale and tear into pieces, removing ribs
  • Heat coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat
  • Add garlic and allow to soften, about 1 minute
  • Add kale and toss in oil to cover
  • Add coriander, salt and pepper
  • Cook kale 3-5 minutes, until soft (but not mushy — we’re not looking for cooked spinach or collard greens consistency)
  • Remove from heat and squeeze lemon all over your kale, then serve
