Sweet and Spicy Kale Stems

Sweet and Spicy Sauteed Kale Stems

This is super dooper simple and a delicious way to ensure you get every last nutrtional nugget from your kale. I also like to crumble feta over the top of mine. For an easy bowl of wholesome goodness add some roasted orange kumara, brown rice and toasted seeds. Eat warm or save for a salad.

Serves 4


    2 teaspoons olive oil
    10-12 kale stems, picked clean of the leaves and chopped into 1 inch pieces
    2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
    ½ teaspoon tamari
    1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
    ½ teaspoon of your favourite hot sauce
    Sea salt, to taste
    pinch of dried chilli flakes
    (1/3 cup of crumbled/diced feta)


    Heat the oil in a medium sized frying pan over medium high heat.
    Add the kale stems and onion and sauté until the kale stems have softened ( about 5 mins) but still have a little crunch.
    Remove from the heat and stir through the tamari, honey or maple syrup, hot sauce, chilli flakes and season to taste with sea salt. Enjoy!
