Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Wilted Kale and Garlic

Keeping it real simple this week, which a lot of time is the best way to do it.

Devein and coarsely chop some kale, figure about two stems per person. Heat a generous pour of extra virgin olive oil in a large wok, straight sided pan, or pot, along with some finely chopped garlic.

Until recently, I’ve waited until the oil was hot to add the garlic, but after reading otherwise I find I’m liking putting it in right away and then heating the oil and garlic together. It definitely makes it easier to avoid burning the garlic.

Once the garlic is translucent, add the kale and toss to coat well. Continue to cook for another minute or so. You’ll know it’s done when it’s in between crunchy and soggy….wilted. Salt to taste, toss well, and serve.
