Sauteeing kale is a quick and delicious way to prepare this vibrant superfood. Fresh garlic adds a punch of savory goodness to this super simple side dish and chicken stock adds rich flavor, while also helping to soften the kale quickly. This versatile recipe pairs well alongside most any protein, from fried eggs to roasted salmon, so it's a great go-to for rounding out weeknight dinner plates. Feel free to add a dash of crushed red pepper or hot sauce for a little heat kick.
