"Kale is a leafy vegetable that is bold and bitter, but it's packed with vitamins and minerals. You can juice it like you would carrots, putting whole stalks into a vegetable drink. It'll boost your greens and your energy levels."
-Chi Lang, Chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

One of the great things about kale is that it cooks so quickly and you can use almost any flavors with it honey, maple syrup, olive oil, sesame oil, spicy flavors or sweet ones.

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.

I have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles, but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there's no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef.


 

Kale with Nutmeg and Honey



Servings = 2 | Serving size =4 ounces

Cooking Time = 15 Minutes

This recipe can be multiplied by 2.

This keeps well and makes a good addition to sandwiches, salads and egg dishes.

1 tsp olive oil
8 ounces fresh kale (thinly sliced crosswise)
2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Heat oil over high heat in a large non-stick skillet. Add the kale and cook, tossing frequently.

As it begins to wilt, add the honey, nutmeg, salt and pepper.

Cook until the kale is very hot, stirring frequently.

When the kale is wilted, but still bright green, it is done. This should take only about 2 minutes.
