Kale and Broth

Kale, oh how I love thee! It is one of my favorite vegetables because it is so hardy and green, not to mention the delectable flavor.  And what better thing to pair kale with than vegetable broth!  No this was no soup by any means, but have you tried cooking with broth? It is amazing, so full of flavor and very healthy and low fat.  Often times I pan fry pork chops in a little little oil and then pour in broth and cover and steam them, so much flavor is added to the meat it is insane, not to mention how juicy the pork chops stay.  Anyways so here is one of my many broth infused recipes, once again a simple and delicious side dish.

Serves 4

The Ingredients
1 large bunch of kale, chopped, (any kind you want, I used a more coarse kale)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups vegetable broth (better than bouillon is the best)
Olive oil
Ground black pepper (to taste, about a 1/2 teaspoon)

The Process
1.  In large skillet heat over medium-high, and add a little bit of olive oil.

2.  When skillet is hot add garlic and cook for about  30 seconds, then add kale.

3.  Stir kale around and add black pepper and cayenne pepper, and cook for about 1 minute.

4.  Add all of broth and stir and cover skillet, let cook for about 3 minutes stirring occasionally.

5.  Kale should be still pretty crunchy and fresh so depending on how hot your stove is adjust time or temperature.  And enjoy!
