Kale with Raisins and Pine Nuts

Kale is one of the healthiest and nutritious plant foods. It’s low in calories but high in vitamins, so it’s among the most nutrient dense foods. A cup of kale contains Vitamins A, B6, C, and K, manganese, calcium, copper, potassium, and magnesium and more This is my favorite kale recipe.


¼ cup toasted pine nuts 2 tsps. extra-virgin olive oil

¾ pounds (6 cups) chopped kale 2 garlic cloves, minced

2 cups water 1/3 cup of raisins

Salt & pepper to taste

Toast pine nuts and set aside. Wash and strip kale from the stalks; discard stalks and roughly chop the kale. Bring water to a boil in a 10x12” skillet with a tight lid. Add the kale and cook covered, over high heat, stirring occasionally, until tender about 5 minutes. Remove kale and drain. Dry the skillet and heat olive oil over medium heat in the skillet; lift and tilt the skillet to coat. Add garlic and sauté for 15 seconds. Add in raisins and sauté for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add in kale and stir to combine. Season with a dash of salt and pepper and cover everything for another minute. Garnish with the toasted pine nuts and serve.
