Spicy Peanut Kale

Serves 4-6 people
Cooking time: about 10 minutes
Vegan; gluten-free

  • 1 big bunch (about 8 cups) of kale, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (gluten-free) or soy sauce
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes (red pepper)
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled

  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. To blanche the kale, quickly cook it in the water for about two minutes, or until tender. Once it's cooked, plunge the kale into cold water to shock it (this will preserve the color). Squeeze out the excess water and set aside.
  2. To make the spicy peanut sauce, place the peanut butter, tamari or soy sauce, lemon juice, chili flakes, garlic, and ginger into a mini food processor. Process until blended together. It should be creamy and not too thick (a little water may be added if needed to thin it out). This step may also be done by hand (just mince the garlic and ginger first and then whisk the mixture together).
  3. Toss the kale with the spicy peanut sauce. Enjoy!
