Garlic Kale and Tahini Dressing

If you aren't down with the greens you might find yourself mourning a vast hole in your life. Or at least that is how I would feel if someone told me I could never eat greens again. I love collards, mustards, turnips and especially kale. Kale has a face only a mother could love but a taste for everyone. Try this dish with any topping or none. It's up to you. Either way this dish is to die for.

6 cloves garlic, sliced
3 tbsps olive oil
1 bunch kale, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
Tahini Dressing (below)
lemon wedges to serve
  1. Saute the garlice in olive oil over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes. Stir frequently.
  2. Once the garlic is golden brown add the kale and few spashes of water. Use tongs to toss the kale around, coating it with the garlic and oil. Stir frequently for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Serve with a drizzle of Tahini Dressing. Garnish with lemon wedges.
