  • 3 handfuls chopped kale
  • 2-4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1-3 teaspoon nutritional yeast optional


  • Warm a skillet over high heat.
  • Add a generous drizzle of olive oil to the pan.
  • Add the garlic, allow the garlic to toast for a minute.
  • Add the kale over top the garlic. Add another splash of oil if desired.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and turn heat to low. Allow the kale to steam with the garlic for 2-3 minutes or just until tender -- but not mushy. The kale should still have some fluffiness to it.
  • Remove the lid. Add the optional nutritional yeast. Add the cider vinegar. Turn off the heat and toss the kale in the pan.
  • Allow the kale to sit in the pan for another few minutes to rest and to allow the liquid to cook off and be absorbed. Serve warm!
