Sweet & Tangy Steamed Kale

Sweet & Tangy Steamed  Kale

Anyone that follows me on Instagram already knows just how much I LOVE Kale. I eat it everyday if possible. Here is one of my favorite ways to prepare it. Just a quick steam and drizzled with a sweet and tangy mustard sauce, it's quick, easy, delicious and you probably have all of the ingredients.


Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Makes: 2-3 Servings


  • 2-3 bunches of kale chopped

  • 1/2 cup of veggie stock (You can use water as well)

  • 1/2 a small red onion thinly sliced

  • 3 garlic cloves minced

  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

The Sauce:

  • 3 tbs of your favorite dijon mustard (or whatever you prefer)

  • 6 tbs of maple syrup or whatever sweetener you prefer (use more or less depending on your taste)

  • 1/2 tbs of onion powder


  1. First prepare the mustard sauce by mixing the mustard, maple syrup (or your sweetener) and onion powder in a small bowl and set it aside.

  2. Next place a large skillet or pot over medium heat and add in the veggie stock, onions and garlic. Next add the kale on top of the onions and garlic. Cover with a lid and let steam for about 2-3 minutes then remove the lid and give the kale a quick toss and cover for an additional 3-4 minutes. You can always steam your kale longer if you desire more tenderness.

  3. Remove from heat and stir in your desired amount of the mustard sauce and add salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Enjoy!
