Simple Sauted Kale


For years my husband and I have been buying Kale, but never for us to eat.  Kale has been a staple in our bearded dragons diet and I have never really thought about making anything with it.  While looking through different vegetarian recipes trying to find 'new' things to try, kale kept coming up.  So the last bunch of kale I bought just looked so crisp and fresh I just had to do something with it...just a simple saute.

Ingredients:

5-6 cups of roughly chopped kale
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, sliced thin
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon
1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste


In a large saute pan, saute the onion in oil until tender, add the garlic.  Place all the kale in the pan and toss to coat, cover for about 10 minutes or until the kale is just al dente and bright green.  Toss the greens once more, add grated parmesan cheese and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Serve hot, season with salt and pepper to taste.
