I’m probably late to the game when it comes to kale but I feel it’s worth a mention.  I tried kale a while ago and it wasn’t for me. I love greens but I obviously did something wrong as it was too tough and not that nice. I recently gave it another go and I love it which means I eat it all the time! That’s why it is this week’s #ROTW.

With all the green smoothies, kale chips and even kale infused nail polish (yes it exists), I hope people aren’t turned off by all its goodness. I have nothing against green smoothies and kale chips (the nail polish is going too far) but you aren’t going to find them here.


This week’s #ROTW may seem a bit boring but often the most delicious things don’t take that much effort. I try to incorporate kale into a lot of meals, as a side or as the main star because I like it and it has huge health benefits to me. Lets just say it has something to do with keeping me regular (Too much information?) Right enough of that, let me tell you one of my favourite ways to eat it.

I don’t really have a name for this dish only because it’s so simple and you can make it to taste but this combination is just heavenly.

You’ll need:


olive oil


lemon juice



I like my kale tender so I actually boil it (or is it blanch? You get get my drift) very briefly first. Once that’s done, I drain it really well and  put it back on a low heat, in the same pot. Drizzle it with olive oil, add some garlic, a squirt of lemon juice and a touch of chilli. Give it a good stir and that’s it, all done. I can’t tell you how delicious this is. If you don’t feel the need to boil/blanch it first, do the whole thing in a frying pan.

I haven’t included any quantities as like I said, flavour it to your liking. I will say though, always use fresh, good quality ingredients. It really makes all the difference.


Couldn't resist
