Creamed Kale |

Until recently, my kale preparation methods was limited to steaming or roasting in the oven (aka kale chips). While making dinner the other night, I realized there was no room in the oven for a pan of kale chips, so I raided the pantry and made this super-fast creamed kale. The coconut milk gives it a hint of sweetness while the spices / nutmeg adds a bit of warmth.

Ingredients for Creamed Kale

  • 1 bag of pre-washed and cut kale (or 1 bunch of kale)
  • 1/3 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • Coconut oil or fat of choice (I mixed coconut oil and butter)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions for Creamed Kale

1. If the kale isn’t pre-washed and cut, do that first. If you bought pre-washed / cut kale, pick through the leaves and discard and hard stems.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add a spoonful of your fat of choice.

3. Saute the kale until softened, stirring often…about 5 minutes.

4. Add the coconut milk and nutmeg. Cook until the coconut milk thickens a bit, about 5 more minutes.

    Thanks for this recipe! It’s very similar to a traditional Hawaiian dish called squid luau which is made with taro (also called luau) leaves and calamari. Taro leaves are impossible to find on the mainland, but I never would have thought to use kale. :)

      I have to say, I’m really intrigued by Hawaiian cooking lately!! I’m here in SoCal so there’s quite a lot of it. Thanks for the awesome suggestion!

    I made this for a large group on Thanksgiving, and it was such a hit I’ve been asked to repeat for Christmas tomorrow. It has become our new favorite greens dish and we try to have it every week. Thanks for the simplicity.

    I know this is an old post however, anyone able to freeze this with success? My garden runneth over with kale… so much so I’ve had a *bunch* of kale every day for 2 weeks!

      Hi Delia! I’ve never tried to freeze it. That sounds like quite the productive garden you have there!
