Thumbs up TNT: Garlicky Broccoli and Kale Stir-Fry

A new member Classicalvoice mentioned in the healthy eating forum that he is looking for more ways to eat greens, so I thought I'd post a favourite kale recipe of mine for him and everyone

Garlicky Broccoli and Kale Stir-Fry

8 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely sliced

1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 large head of fresh green or purple broccoli, cleaned and chopped into small floret pieces (you can also use cauliflower if you prefer)

1 large bunch of kale or spinach, well cleaned to remove any grit and sand, stems removed and sliced into thin strips

¼ cup of olive packed sun dried tomatoes

1/3 cup of toasted slivered almonds

Kosher or sea salt to taste


In a large frying pan (or you could easily use a wok here) over medium high heat, warm the olive oil and stir in the garlic. Cook it until it is a nice golden brown colour (about 2 minutes). Stir in the broccoli and cook for about 2 minutes (you may need more time if you are using cauliflower, I'd say about 4-5 minutes).

Stir in the kale and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the sun dried tomatoes and stir everything together, add a little more olive oil or the olive from the sun dried tomatoes if you think the greens look too dry. Season to taste, and transfer to a large serving bowl. Garnish with the toasted almond slices and serve immediately.


Serves 6 people as a side dish


~Enjoy~

I think you can throw greens into almost anything. And garlic goes with deep greens (as do sun dried tomatoes!) Your recipe looks great, thanks!
