KALE STIR-FRY BRAZILIAN STYLE / COUVE MANTEIGA REFOGADA


This is a very simple stir-fry recipe of kale from the Brazilian Cuisine. It can be served as a side dish  with grilled meats or sea food. You can make it plain or with the addition of bacon. Traditionally it is served with Feijoada as one of the many other accompaniments like fried banana, farofa ...

This recipe is part of  A-Z Recipe Challengewherein we bloggers come together and choose  key ingredients alphabetically to make and post a dish every month. The alphabet of the month is " K " and I decided to make "Kale stir-fry".

Ingredients:
Kale ........ 1 bunch
Onions ...... 1 large (chopped finely)
Garlic ....... 2 tbsps (crushed coarsely)
Salt ......... to taste
Oil .......... 1-2 tbsps

Method:
1. Wash the kale and wipe well with a kitchen towel.
2. Cut out the thick stem from the lower side of the leaves.
3. Stack few leaves one on top of the other and roll them together.
4. Cut out thin strips and separate them.
5. In a pan heat the oil and saute the garlic.
6. Add the onions and stir-fry until translucent.
7. Now tip in the kale and saute for a couple of minutes.
8. Season with salt.
9. This can be served as an accompaniment with your meals.

  1. These simple stir-fries have a way of elevating a simple meal into a great meal. Of course, that they are supremely nutritious is just a bonus.

  2. I find this comforting as I find it hard to chew up raw kale. Stirfry will definetely make it softer. I am sure the the garlic creates such a lovely aroma.

  14. I am loving how simple the recipe of this delicious and healthy Kale Stir Fry is! A great side for Dal Chawal or Crusty toasted breads too during winters. I prefer stir frying leafy greens too as they cook faster in their own juices and retains nutrition levels too, just like this kale stir fry.
