Sauteed Kale

Kale is considered a superfood - but when we juiced it, it tasted like lawn. This sautee is actually pretty good and super healthy!

Sauteed Kale

1 bunch Kale, washed and chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
3 small cloves garlic, grated
3 tbsp shelled unsalted sunflower seeds
3 tbsp shelled unsalted pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup brown basmati rice
2.25 cups water

In a small saucepan, add rice and water, bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook 30-40 minutes.

In frying pan, heat olive oil. Add onions and garlic and sautee until tender. Add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and kale. Cook until kale is tender and has reduced in size.

Serve sautee over rice.

** We have also made this recipe with swiss chard (another superfood) and it was just as tasty, a little less mild.
