Garlic Kale

April 15, 2008

1 bunch kale, stems removed. torn
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbs olive oil
Tahini dressing from 101 Cookbooks http://www.101cookbooks.com/

Tahini Dressing:
1 garlic clove, smashed and chopped
1/4 cup tahini
zest of one lemon
scant 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons hot water
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt

Combine tahini, lemon zest, juice, olive oil, and sea salt. Whisk in hot water to thin.

Garlic Kale:

Heat a heavy sauce pan on medium high heat. Add olive oil to coat bottom of pan. Add garlic to hot oil and heat until golden, being sure the garlic doesn’t burn. Remove any pieces of garlic that do. Add kale to garlic and oil. Allow to wilt until just softened, but still with a little bite. Alternately remove pan from heat, and put it back on so that the garlic doesn’t burn and become bitter. Serve kale with a drizzle of tahini dressing
