Spicy Garlic Kale

I love kale so much, the joke around my house is that if I was in a band, it would be called "Kale on the Side".
(I would be the tambourine girl, of course)

I make this quick kale at least a few times a week as a side dish because if the main dish doesn't include kale, I'm sad.
This method works with both lacinato (Tuscan) kale or heartier green or purple curly varieties.

Spicy Garlic Kale

1 bunch kale, stems removed and chopped
2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
sea salt and pepper to taste

Heat 1-2 tsp olive oil over medium heatAdd garlic and red pepper flakes, heat 3 minutesAdd kale and saute for 5-7 minutes (maybe longer for heartier leaves)Finish with sea salt and black pepper
