What You’ll Need:
2 Bunches of Tuscan Kale (Ribs removed and leaves sliced to desired size)
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup lemon juice (I used Meyer Lemons to make it a little less tart)
3 cloves of mashed Garlic
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese (and some larger shavings for garnish)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
A pinch of red pepper flakes
Making this is super easy just whisk your olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Then add in your kale and toss until well coated. Let it sit at room temperature for about 15 to 20 mins.
Next add in your parmesan (and 2 Tbps of toasted whole wheat toasted bread crumbs if you like) and toss. Top with a few larger pieces of fresh parmesan and serve!
*Now I made this with the pre-bagged Organic Tuscan Kale from Trader Joe’s but next time I’ll make it with Organic bunches that I can remove the ribs. In the TJ’s bag the kale is cut but the ribs are still in it and it does makes a difference. Also I think I will make this recipe with half the oil next time and see how it turns out! Even though this recipe could serve about 4 people I know I could easily eat half in one sitting so I’m going to try it with a little less oil and see how it turns out.
