This is a simple and delicious way to prep kale.

It was shared with me by a lovely client – dancer, Zumba instructor, vegetarian.

In my last post about kale I showed you how to choose a good bunch of healthy curly kale, prep it for use in salads, and have on hand when you need it.

This kale made on the stove top has a taste and crunch similar to kale chips.

Yet it maintains just enough softness to make it edible with a fork.  A perfect side dish.

Follow these simple steps to deliciousness:

(5-7 min)

Make extra and store it in the fridge so you have fast greens ready for another meal.


  • 1 bunch dinosaur kale
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt


  • Wash and de-stem the Kale. (Watch my fave steps to do that here.)
  • Cut the leaves into about half.
  • Dry them with a hand towel.
  • Put a little olive oil in a pan. (About 1/2 Tablespoon, or spray the pan with a mister.)

Pan with olive oil

  • Fry the kale until it turns crispy. (About 3 minutes) Let some leaves get slightly burnt.


  • Sprinkle it with a small amount of salt and some fresh lemon juice.


  • Plate it and Enjoy!

This kale is great with light proteins like fish, tofu or chicken. (My client likes it with eggs in the morning).
