Menu Monday – Sauteed Kale

Welcome back to Menu Monday!  This week I am sharing with you a delicious and super easy side dish (and let’s all be honest…easy is a must!).  I make this all the time and I use the bagged kale you can find in the salad section at the grocery store to make it even easier on myself.  It is a little tangy, a little spicy and a lot yummy.  Enjoy!!!




  • 1 12lbs kale, stems and leaves coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • crushed red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 12cup chicken stock/broth or 12cup water
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add crushed red pepper flakes, if using, and let them sizzle a bit in the oil.
  3. Add the garlic and cook until soft, but not colored.
  4. Raise heat to high, add the stock and kale and toss to combine.
  5. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove cover and continue to cook, stirring until all (most) the liquid has evaporated. I like the kale to still remain bright-ish green.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add vinegar.
