Sweet and Spicy Sautéed Kale Stems

What do you do with kale stems after you’ve torn off the tasty leaves? Do you throw them away? Compost them? EAT them??

I’ve been throwing a few stems into my morning smoothies; doesn’t add much taste but if I go a little overboard I’m left with a thick, in not a good kind of way, smoothie. Just a little fyi.

It was my sister who saved me from kale stem smoothie overload. Thanks sis!

I don’t know if this is anything like the sweet kale stems she had at a local restaurant but I’m excited to start experimenting with those hard, woody, only edible after your Vitamix attacks them, stalks.

They’re like a mix between green beans and asparagus.

Once they’re cooked they still have a little crunch, like a properly cooked vegetable should have. Like kale, they’re a little bit bitter but take well to different flavours.

I like the sweet and spicy combination with the slightly bitter stems.
