Move over sautéed spinach and make way for sautéed kale! Sautéed spinach is a traditional family side. In recent years, kale has taken the spotlight in the healthy food trend. Most of us know that kale is a great source of protein. In this recipe, I include white beans for added protein! In addition to protein, kale is high in fiber, calcium and potassium. This recipe is easy to make and is made in minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 small red onions, diced (or 2 shallots)
  • ¼ tsp salt, optional
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 cups packed kale, chopped (stems removed)
  • 1 can white beans
  • 2 oregano springs (or 1 tsp dried)

Instructions

  1. Over medium heat in a medium size pan, add the oil and garlic. Once golden add the onions. Occasionally sauté for 10 minutes. Add the salt and pepper, if desired.
  2. Now add the vegetable broth. Mix around. Add the kale. Lower heat. Cover for 5 minutes. Once the kale is wilted, add the beans.
  3. Mix then add the oregano. Enjoy!
