creamed kale recipe |


Hey! I saw you roll your eyes! I know, I know. It's been done. Like, a million times.

But wait! This kale is CREAMED. And so GOOD. If you like creamed spinach (and who doesn't? I mean, cream, butter...yum!), then you'll love this version with kale. It's a little different but a lot delicious.

And this recipe can be made in one pan and comes together in FIVE MINUTES.

Yup. I said five minutes.

Sold? Well, you will be once you give it a try.

So go ahead:

creamed kale

Creamed Kale


1 bunch of kale, de-stemmed, rinsed and cut into ribbons (or small pieces)
1 white onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
1/2 cup broth (I used vegetable)
1 heaping tbsp arrowroot powder (you can use cornstarch in  pinch but this is better)
4 tbsp goat cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper


 Over medium heat, saute onions and garlic until they soften

 In a measuring cup, whisk together broth and arrowroot powder

 Add broth mixture to onions and mix immediately. It will thicken up fast!

 Turn down heat and add goat cheese. stir until combined

 Fold in kale and let wilt slightly.

 Add salt and pepper to taste

And now you have a pan filled with hearty healthy goodness. Enjoy!
