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

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


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.
