Cream Kale

Updated: Apr 8, 2022

If you love cream spinach you will love my take on cream kale. You can eat alone as is or with chips, I prefer blue corn chips. I prefer Kale instead of spinach to me it holds up better and has a nice firm bite.

Serves 8

1 Pound of kale fresh or frozen (I prefer fresh)

1/2 stick of unsalted butter

1/3 chopped onion

6 garlic cloves finely chopped

1/4 cup of flour

1 cup of heavy cream

1/3 cup fresh Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1tsp of kosher salt

1 tsp seasoned pepper

2 pinches of red pepper flakes

If using fresh kale , remove the stalks and major ribs and discard.

Chop roughly. Wash the kale in cold water . Place Kale in a large pot and boil for about 10-15 minutes until cooked.

Once cooked drain into a strainer and run cold water over kale, then drain and squeeze dry with paper towels. Set Kale aside.

Melt butter in a saute pan over medium -high heat. Add garlic and onions stirring constantly, for about 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the onion and garlic mixture, stiring for about 3 minutes. Turn heat down to medium, make sure the mixture does not turn brown .

Once thoroughly mixed whisk in heavy cream stirring continuously, until the sauce thickens.

Season mixture with spices . Add the kale and cheese and mix well . Serve immediately , Garnish the creamed kale with red pepper flakes.
