  1. 1 bag (500g) Cookin’ Greens Chopped Kale
  2. 1/2 cup (125ml) hot unsalted or low sodium vegetable stock
  3. 2 tbsp (30ml) coconut or unscented oil (grapeseed, canola, vegetable)
  4. 1 tsp (5ml) whole cumin seeds
  5. 1 tsp (5ml) mustard seeds
  6. 1 hot green chilli, finely chopped (optional)
  7. 4 cloves garlic, 4 tsp, (20ml) finely sliced
  8. 3 tbsp (45ml) fresh grated coconut
  9. Salt, pepper and red chilli flakes to taste
  1. 1 - 2 tbsp (15-30ml) coconut or unscented oil
  2. 1 garlic clove, smashed but left whole
  3. 2 long, dried red chillies
  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan. When hot, add cumin, mustard seeds, and chilli flakes. Stir together, until the cumin starts to sizzle and mustard seeds pop (about 30 seconds).
  2. Add sliced garlic and green chilli (if using) and sauté for an additional 30 seconds, until the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Add frozen Cookin’ Greens Chopped Kale to the pan, stir well. Add the hot vegetable stock. Cook for about 5 - 7 minutes, until the kale is tender and the stock evaporated. Season generously with the sea salt and black pepper.
  4. Take off the heat and stir in the grated coconut.
  5. To make the tempering, heat the oil in a small pan. When oil is hot, add garlic and red chilli. Sauté for about 30 seconds, until chillies darken and garlic is beginning to brown.
  6. Pour over the kale, and cover immediately with a lid to trap the aromas. Just before serving, stir together well.
