Sauteed Kale with Apples
Looking to try kale but aren't sure how to prepare it? Try this deliciously easy Sauteed Kale with Apples. With only a handful of ingredients, you'll have a new healthy side dish to add to your menu.
Servings: 6 people
- 4 Tablespoons coconut oil
- 12 ounces washed and chopped kale
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 green apple, peeled and diced
- salt (or Himalayan Pink salt) and pepper
- 2-3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar (optional--see notes)
Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high to medium high heat. Saute kale and onions until wilted down approximately 10-15 minutes. Add a tablespoon more oil if it seems dry.
Add diced green apple and continue to saute for another minute or two.
Add salt, pepper and apple cider vinegar to taste. Start with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and add another if needed. (see notes about adding vinegar).
- I prefer to buy the pre-washed, chopped bags of kale; they are all ready to go with less work. Feel free to buy a bunch of kale. If so, be sure to remove the woody stems.
- If you choose to use baby kale, it will wilt in just a couple minutes as opposed to 10-15 minutes. In this case, saute the onions first until soft, then add the kale.
- Olive oil can be substituted for coconut oil.
- Green apples work best since they have a crisp bite to them.
- Eating greens with vinegar is very traditional but not everyone cares for them this way. If you aren't a fan of the acidic flavor of vinegar, substitute it for a sprinkle of sugar or brown sugar for a sweeter version of sauteed kale.
- Kale Stir Fry can easily meet the criteria of a clean eating recipe and would be a great side for an Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge if organic ingredients and Pink Himalayan Salt is used.
