Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Sesame Glazed Kale

1 pound kale, stemmed
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Recipe Directions for Lemon Sesame Glazed Kale

  1. 1. Remove any large stems from the greens and wash them thoroughly; do so in a sink with at least 5 inches of water. Moving the leaves around in the water and allowing them to sit for a few minutes to allow the sand or dirt to fall to the bottom of the sink. Once clean, roughly chop the greens. You should have 1 to 1 1/4 pounds finished greens once they are stemmed. (Weigh the greens after stemming, but before washing.)

  2. 2. Heat a large 13 by 11-inch roasting pan set over 2 burners on medium heat. Once hot, add the olive oil. Add the garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, and pepper and stir to combine. Add the greens and saute for 4 to 5 minutes, tossing continually. Add the red pepper flakes and the sesame seeds. Toss to combine. Adjust seasoning, if needed. Serve immediately.
