4. Stir Fries:
Follow the directions for steaming kale, but instead of throwing kale in a steamer pot, throw it into your stir-fry after the dish has finished cooking. The residual heat from the dish will cook your kale perfectly, but if it doesnít cook well enough simply turn the heat back on for a moment.
Tip: If your kale is a bit too chewy in the dish, add a touch of oil or tahini to soften the kale and add flavor.
Just as with a stir fry, when adding kale to a soup you want to make sure the other ingredients are fully cooked before adding in your kale pieces (removed from the stem and chopped). I find kale an excellent addition to pretty much any type of soup. Just cook up a pot like you normally would and then throw your kale in right before the dish finishes cooking (usually 10-12 minutes in a hot soup will be enough to soften and cook the kale.)
