Steamed Kale

Kale is often just used as a garnish on salad bars. It is, however, delicious when cooked and a rich source of calcium and antioxidants.

1 lb kale
1 tsp quality extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cider vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash the kale well by submerging it in clean water a couple of times. Use a sharp knife to cut out the ribs of the kale and coarsely chop the leaves.

2. In a large skillet with a lid, heat the oil. Sauté the garlic until it just begins to turn golden. Add the kale and the water. Stir briefly and cover. Cook on medium until the kale is tender but still bright green. Sprinkle with vinegar, season to taste and serve.
