A simple but seriously good side dish of garlicky, buttery kale. We’ve used chilli and lemon too for extra zing and spice.

For an alternative, take a look at this warm salad of kale, roast squash and lentils.

Ingredients

  • 500g kale
  • 40g butter
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
  • Pinch red chilli flakes
  • Finely grated zest and juice 1 lemon

Method

  1. Trim and discard the tough stalks from the kale and roughly chop the leaves. Rinse well, then shake dry.
  2. Melt the butter in a large heavy-based frying pan and gently fry the garlic, chilli flakes and lemon zest with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper for 3-4 minutes until soft but not browned. Add the kale and stir for about 5 minutes over a medium heat until just wilted. Add a little of the lemon juice, taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
