Kale – it really is braw

Kale grows anywhere, it’s good for you (full of sulforaphane you see) and my granny likes it. This is a great little recipe for serving with meat dishes (both traditional blighty ones or something spicy) but is also great served on it’s own with noodles.

1 bag of fresh kale (right now we are getting the most beautiful kale from Mr Whole Shebag)
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp oil
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a wok (or non stick pan, we aren’t pan-ist here at stovies) over a medium heat. While this is heating, chop the garlic and throw in the wok. Tear the kale into relatively big pieces and add to the garlic. Pour in the lime juice and honey, stir and put a lid on. Steam for about two minutes, season to taste and serve. Brilliant, ultra quick, healthy, light and not bitter like a lot of brassica can be.
