Sauteed Kale with Garlic and Lemon

I love kale and this is my favorite way to serve it as a side. Adding lemon to kale really puts its flavor over the top, while giving the already great health benefits of kale an extra boost.

Servings: 2
Difficulty: Easy


1 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 c. kale, stems removed and coarsely chopped (about 1/2 of a bunch)
1/2 c. vegetable broth
Salt & pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. lemon juice


Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Add vegetable broth and kale. Stir to coat kale with liquid and cover pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes until kale is slightly wilted and vivid green. Remove lid and cook a few minutes more until all liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat and season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Mix well and serve.
