  1. Put the kale and the whole garlic cloves into a large non-reactive pan with a lid. Add salt and just enough water to cover.  Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the leaves are tender, about 15 – 20 minutes. Reserve a cup of the cooking water then drain.
  2. Blend the cooked kale and garlic into a blender with olive oil, nutmeg, and ¼ cup of the reserved broth. Add more of the reserved water, a little at a time, if the sauce seems too stiff.  The sauce should be very thick but pourable. Adjust seasoning and serve tossed with a short whole wheat pasta and freshly grated parmesan.

Chef Tips

Since there’s a lot of garlic in this, it’s OK to buy a small jar of pre-peeled garlic cloves, especially if neuropathy has made using your hands painful. For the same reason, pre-cut kale is golden for this yummy nutritious sauce.
