I’m finally feeling functional after being quite sick the past few days, and I discovered a trick for feeding your family crazy healthy food: go to the store when you are feeling just enough better to be hungry. I stopped into Trader Joe’s this morning, and there was not enough green in the whole store for me. I could have gobbled down every last bite of produce in the place on the spot. I restrained myself from doing that, and came home and whipped myself up a heaping bowl of this delicious goodness. The inspiration is all from Joie, and this dish of green wonder can be modified a hundred ways, but this is how I made it today and it hit the spot. Also, it took less than 3 minutes, for real. (It would take more if you don’t buy prewashed kale.)
- Coconut oil (or other cooking oil) — a couple of teaspoons maybe, you know, a dollop
- 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced or minced, as you prefer
- 1 handful of raisins
- 2 big handfuls of kale (I bought the prewashed and cut kind at Trader Joe’s)
- 1/2 handful pecans (toasted would be lovely; I couldn’t be bothered)
- Add the coconut oil and garlic to a skillet over medium heat.
- When the coconut oil is melted and before the garlic browns, add the raisins and kale. Cook until the kale is bright green and just starting to wilt.
- Add the pecans and toss everything around for 30 or 45 more seconds.
