Stir-Fried Shredded Kale

Andy Kruse
 
Serves 10 as an accompaniment to Feijoada Completa
 

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds kale, rinsed and thoroughly dried
  • 4 tablespoons mild olive oil, or more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced garlic
  • Salt
 
Instructions
 
1. Roll up a few kale leaves and shred them into thin ribbons. Repeat with the rest of the kale.

2. In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over high heat. Add half of the garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add half of the kale and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes, until it turns bright green. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat with the rest of the oil, garlic, and kale. Taste the kale; if it doesn't seem tender enough, replace all the kale in the skillet, add 3 to 4 tablespoons water, cover, and steam for a few minutes. (The kale can be prepared ahead and reheated right before serving.)
