ABOUT THE RECIPE:
Flavorful Kale with Creamy Walnut Sauce is a tasty way to serve this leafy green.
Makes 4 servings
1 very large bunch kale, washed, de-stemmed and very thinly sliced
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup water, plus more as needed
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
1 to 2 teaspoons tamari
1 clove garlic, halved
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Steam the kale until wilted and quite soft but still bright green, for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the leaf. Transfer the kale to a medium-sized bowl.
Put the walnuts, water, Italian seasoning, tamari and garlic into a blender and process until creamy in texture, adding more water if needed, two tablespoons at a time, to achieve desired consistency. Pour the sauce over the steamed kale and toss until the kale leaves are evenly coated. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
