Kale with Baby Carrots Cranberries and Pine Nuts

Hello everyone, here is a fast and easy recipe for kale which I created a while back. I am always trying to find ways to eat kale that make it taste good. When cooked badly it can be unpleasant, but when cooked well can really be lovely. I know if you are a follower in the UK it is hard to find kale that hasn't already been chopped up, but if you can this will work much better. It is important to cut the stem out of kale as it is hard and difficult to chew.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 bunches dinosaur kale -- destemmed washed and chopped
10 baby carrots -- sliced on the diagonal
2 tablespoons dried cranberries -- minced
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Melt the coconut oil in a large high sided skillet. Put the carrots in first and sautee for 5 minutes. Add the kale and cook for between 4 and 6 minutes or until it is soft. Turn off heat

Add the cranberries.

Heat another small skillet and throw in the pine nuts. Cook for a few minutes - until the nuts are slightly browned. Then add to the kale mixture.

Kale is a nutritional powerhouse providing large amounts of vitamin A, more absorbable calcium than dairy products and also large amounts of potassium. It is one the best anti-cancer veggies out there.
