Coconut Creamed Kale

Serves: 3-4

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

• 1 bag or large bunch of organic kale, chopped

• 1-2 tbsp grass-fed butter, coconut oil, or ghee (your preference)

• 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk

• 1 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves minced garlic

• dash of sea salt

 

Instructions:

1. Add fat of choice to pan and place on medium heat. Once it melts add in your kale and cover. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes.

2. Remove the cover and mix around the kale. The goal is for it to be almost completely cooked. If this is the case, add your coconut milk and lower heat to medium-low and cook for another 5 minutes.
