Simple Sauteed Kale

SidesWhitney CarlsonComment

If you are looking for a new leafy green to add to your list, this simple recipe definitely fits the bill. Kale chips might be a great snack, but sauteing your kale is a great option for filling up your dinner plate and adding some much needed vitamins into your diet. Got 15 minutes? This is perfect!

Simple Sauteed Kale


  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil


1. Wash and shake kale leaves to dry. Remove stems and tear leaves in thirds or halves depending on size of leaf.

2. Place slightly damp kale leaves in a bowl and add seasoning, tossing to combine.

3. In a large skillet, heat coconut oil over medium high heat.

4. Add kale leaves and cook approximately 10 minutes, stirring to thoroughly cook, until leaves are slightly wilted and darker in color. 

5. Serve immediately.

He and She Tip:

Overcooking your vegetables leads to degradation of vitamins in foods. We typically cook our kale leaves to the extent they are soft, but still slightly crunchy.
