Dark leaf kale is full of nutrients and very low in carbs. It goes well with meat or crispy bacon.
Braised Kale is a healthy and tasty choice for a green side.
Remove the hard stems and chop or tear the kale into smaller pieces.
Slice the onion and slice or mash the garlic (if used). Together with the pepper flakes, place in a pan greased with coconut oil and cook until slightly brown.
Add the chopped kale, pour in the vegetable stock, season with salt and cover with a lid.
Lower the heat to minimum and cook for 40-45 minutes.
When done, add the pine nuts and place on a serving plate and enjoy!
The braised kale can be covered and refrigerated overnight. Reheat before serving.
