Garlic Kale

SO simple and SO good!  You will love this!  This is my first time to cook Kale myself...and this one goes down in the books as a KEEPER!

2 Tbs organic butter
1 Tbs olive oil
4 garlic cloves (I like the pre-minced)
One bunch of kale, chopped (remove fiberous stems)
2 tsp tamari soy sauce (or low-sodium soy sauce)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
Melt butter/olive oil in pan and add garlic.  Saute garlic in oil for 10 min at a low heat (or until garlic has flavored the oil), just don't let the garlic burn or get too brown...this will make a bitter flavor.  Turn the head up to medium and place the kale into the pan.  Toss as it wilts (about 5-7 min).  You can cover for period of time too to speed up the process a bit.  While waiting, combine your lemon juice and soy sauce.  When ready, pour over the top of the wilted kale and toss.  Serve warm.
Makes 4 servings (but you will eat at least 1/2 of this YOURSELF, guarenteed)
Note:  The original recipe comes from the PCOS Diva Jumpstart program.  She uses peeled smashed garlic.  Then she removes it from the pan after it has been sauted for a while.  I LOVE I use the minced garlic and just leave it in the final dish instead of removing it.  YUM!!
