Braised Kale with Sesame Seeds

kale Braised Kale with Sesame Seeds

Kale is a relatively new favorite at our house.  I discovered kale after food blogging and have been using it more and more in my cooking.  I started with Pesto Penne with Kale, Mushrooms, and Bacon and have moved on to braver uses of kale.  My husband loves that pasta recipe, but was reluctant to try this recipe until I told him that kale is a superfood!  Eating more greens should be a priority for everyone.   


1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped

1 bunch of kale

squeeze of lemon juice

1/2 cup vegetable stock or broth

1 Tablespoon of gluten-free Tamari Sauce (not sure how much for reg. soy sauce)

2 Tablespoons sesame seeds


In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook until almost translucent.  Add the garlic and cook for about a minute more.  Stir in the kale and the vegetable broth.  Cover and cook until the kale is tender – about 10 minutes.  Squeeze with lemon juice.  Stir in the sesame seeds. 

Serve about 4.
