Cooking instructionsHow to

  1. Rinse and clean 500 g green kale, remove the stems and tear the leaves in pieces.
  2. Boil the kale in water with 2 vegetable stock cubes for 30 minutes until it is soft. If you are using frozen kale it takes 5 minutes.
  3. Pour off the water and brown the kale in 1 tbsp butter in a pot. Pour over 100 ml cream and 1 tbsp honey and boil together for about 10 minutes. If you want the kale thicker you can powder over 1 tbsp of flour.
  4. Take a moment to be mindful and grateful. Try to feel grateful to whoever produced the ingredients you are about to eat. Feel grateful that you cooked the food yourself and are able to nurture your body. Eat slowly and mindfully.
