Kale and Toasted Pine Nuts

Kale has become the new “hot” food to consume and this might be a great way to ‘try it out’ if  you have not tasted it OR did not care for the way it was prepared for you. The amount of Kale will cook down so don’t be scared.

  • 4 bunches of kale
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 red onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • scant 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted


Fold each leaf in half, cut stem away from the crease. Tear the leaves coarsely.

Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the onion and garlic. Saute until onion is soft (about 6 minutes). Add half the kale, packing slightly until it wilts. Add the remaining kale and half of the pine nuts, Toss until the kale is tender and still a bright green.

Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle the remaining pine nuts over.

Now, was I right? Tastes pretty good? You betcha!
