Steamed Kale

My garden is full of kale right now and since this is the first year I tried to grow this superfood, I didn't think that I will be this successful. So now I am left with so much crop that I am not sure how I will ever be able to use it all up. 

Let's start with steaming it and using it as a side dish for tonight's dinner!

If you are just like me and believe in organic gardening, you will have to properly wash the kale through and through so you don't find some unwanted protein on your plate. My garden is full of bugs, worms, and caterpillars. After washing it, cut it up, and place into a pot brushed with olive oil. 

I added some garlic salt and sesame seeds while the kale was steaming. Mix it well, sprinkle some water, and cover with lid. Steam for about 5 minutes.

I sprinkled raw parmesan cheese on top of the steamed kale and used it as a side dish for our barley and sunny side up eggs dinner. Yummy but next time I would cut off all the stems and used only the soft leaf part.
