kale stewed with peanut butter, ginger & garlic


1-2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp ginger, minced

3 shallots, minced

2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced

1 large bunch of kale, ribs & tough stems removed, leaves roughly chopped

2 tomatoes, diced

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or more to taste)

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup coconut milk


Blanch kale for 2 minutes in large pot of boiling water, and drain.

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add ginger, shallots and garlic, and saute for a few minutes. Add diced tomato, cayenne and kale. Stir well.

Add coconut milk and peanut butter, and stir. Bring to a simmer, and reduce heat to low. Cover partially with the lid.  Simmer for 30 minutes, or until desired consistency, stirring occasionally.

Could also add drained & rinsed canned chickpeas or beans when the kale & tomatoes are added.

  1. Wow this sounds great. I was just at the grocery store and saw some kale staring at me longingly. I didn’t pick up any, but if I had seen this recipe earlier I would have. I love the combination of greens and spicy sauces.
