Here is a quick but tasty recipe using kale, from the William Sonoma cookbook, Cooking from the Farmers’ Market; it can’t get much simpler!  The recipe serves 6.

2 Tbsp plus 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 bunches kale, about 2 lbs total weight, stems removed


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the 2 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice and garlic.  Add salt and pepper to taste to make a vinaigrette.  Set aside.
  2. In a large frying pan, over medium heat, warm the remaining 2 teaspoon olive oil.
  3. Cut the kale leaves crosswise into 1 inch strips and add to the pan.  Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale wilts, about 5-7minutes.
  4. Uncover, drizzle the vinaigrette over the top, and toss.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve right away.
