Yeah, I’m seriously late to the game and just tried kale this week for the very first time. It wasn’t anything like I expected. From all the web chatter, I expected something bitter and tough but it wasn’t like that at all. In fact, I just purchased a bag of prewashed and chopped kale at the grocery and it was fine. I didn’t even separate the stems from the leaves and parboil first. Nope, it was MUCH easier than expected:

EZ Kale with Corn

  • 1 bag of chopped, prewashed kale
  • 1 shallot, chopped fine
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water with 1 cube of Not-Chick’n dissolved
  • 2 cups of frozen corn
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  1. Saute shallot in oil.
  2. Add kale, corn and broth and toss
  3. Salt and season with white pepper to taste.
  4. Saute until wilted well but not army green, should still be bright green

Serve with other foods or you’ll do as I did and fill up on kale, resulting in cabbage-like gastronomical issues. Better to mix your foods folks.
