I'm always trying to fit more greens into my diet. Kale is my go-to green because not only does it taste fabulous, but it's also a nutrient superstar. There is a great business in Sudbury, ON called Adoro that sells this amazing selection of infused and flavoured olive oils and balsamic vinegars. I had purchased a great sampler pack from them at a women's show a few months ago, and I've been incredibly impressed with the quality of their products. Today, I'm using the Wild Mushroom & Sage flavoured olive oil because I think the flavours work really well with the other ingredients.
Wild Mushroom &Sage flavoured olive oil (you can use regular olive oil too)
1/4 of a red onion, chopped
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2-3 cups baby kale
Heat oil in a frying pan. Add onions and cook, covered, until soft. Mix in garlic and carrots and cook another 3 minutes or so. Add baby kale and a small splash of water to prevent burning. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes or until kale is wilted.
I served this on a bed of rice, which would technically count as a 6th ingredient. Whoops! This would also be great served on pasta, quinoa or another grain. Have fun with it!
