I love simple. I love time-saving side dishes that make my life easier. This dish is one of those.

You can make this dish in a frying pan and have beautiful sauteed kale but for me I need time and I also like texture in my meals. So, with this recipe I put it in the oven and go get work done for 10-12 minutes.

Baking this in the oven makes some ends of the kale crispy which I love. This adds just a different flavor and feel to the dish that I personally enjoy more. And, again, remember you can be hands free for 10-12 minutes to do laundry or fix the rest of your meal.

This can be used as a side dish with any meal or in some unique ways I enjoy using it – In my household planning ahead and making large batches of certain foods helps us live a busy lifestyle. For instance we always have a large batch of quinoa in the refrigerator. To for a meal for lunch I can grab some pre-cooked quinoa, beans and this sauteed kale. That is a delicious, simple, super-clean meal that is thrown together in minutes.

For supper you can have this kale topped with any lean protein of your choice and some whipped cauliflower potatoes. This makes a low-carb fantastic supper.

This sauteed kale would also be beautiful over top of scrambled tofu or eggs.

So, with this one dish you have ideas for breakfast, lunch and supper.

This recipe is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, simple, spicy, cheesy and delicious.
